CALL FOR ABSTRACTS/PAPERS This conference on financial mathematics will be focusing on pressing challenges in finance and insurance produced by climate change, demographic developments, and the ever-increasing dominance of data and information. Alongside the challenges, this three-day conference’s goal will devote time to the role and responsibilities financial and insurance mathematics have in developing solutions and in assisting with transitions necessary to mitigate irreversible adverse environmental and socio- economic impact. The aim is to promote interdisciplinary cooperation bridging mathematics, statistics and computer science with finance, climate science, insurance and economics. Industry professionals and members of government agencies will be invited to share their experience and expertise alongside academic experts in the field in order to scope out the most urgent research directions with the highest potential for incisive solutions.

On this basis we invited academics and practitioners to submit papers to the Conference in the following fields: ● Mathematical Finance Interest Rates and Credit Risk, Systemic Risk, Model Risk and Uncertainty, Game Theory/Mean Field Games, Stochastic Modelling of Epidemics (or Climate), and more. ● Actuarial Science Extreme events, Pensions/Annuities, Mortality (COVID implications), New Insurance Paradigms, Population mortality modelling, and Risk Measures and more. ● Climate Change Risk Climate Risk, Extreme events, Transition Risk, Population displacement and migration, Stranded assets and more. ● Digital Finance Mobile money, Fintech/Insurtech, Cyber Risk, Decentralization of financial flows, Cryptocurrencies, Telematics and more. ● Green Energy and Finance Green Bonds and Renewable Investment, Smart Grid, Distributed Energy Systems and Micro-grid, Emission Trading, Renewable Energy, Electric and Hybrid Vehicles, Smart Storage and more.

Confirmed Invited Speakers: Fabio Angelo Maccheroni, Università Bocconi Markus Leippold, University of Zurich, Department of Banking and Finance Luitgard Veraart, London School of Economics and Political Science Catherine Donnelly, Heriot Watt University
