CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS FOR THE

16th EAST ASIAN ACTUARIAL CONFERENCE (EAAC)

VENTURE INTO UNCERTAINTY CAPTURE OPPORTUNITIES!”

10th to 13th OCTOBER 2011, SHANGRI-LA HOTEL, KUALA LUMPUR
Actuarial Society of Malaysia (ASM) is proud to organize the 16th EAAC to be held on the 10th to 13th October 2011 in the lovely city of Kuala Lumpur. The event will be held in the prestigious Shangri-La Hotel with an expected attendance of 500-600 actuaries from across Asia as well as other parts of the world.
ASM expects that the majority of the participants will be from around the South East Asian region together with other EAAC countries such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, Korea, Japan and Australia. The conference would also be open to other associations, especially the International Actuarial Association (IAA) and their sub-committees within the IAA. 
The entire conference will take place over 2 ½ days. We estimate that there will be 3 plenary sessions and 20 parallel sessions. The plenary session will be of duration 1 hour each whereas the parallel sessions will be 30 minutes duration each with a 30-minute Q&A session at the end of each parallel session. There would be no repeat sessions and the sessions will be conducted back to back, with allowance for breaks, mealtimes and city tour. A draft programme schedule can be found in Appendix A.
Following ASM’s successful organization of the 1st Life and Family Takaful Conference in December 2010, we note that speakers generally prefer to use presentational slides over providing a formal paper. We are inviting timely, relevant and high-quality presentation contributions from you on general topics that are listed in Appendix B with particular reference to the theme above.
Presentation papers will be reviewed for acceptance based on the following criteria:


  • Relevance to the theme and Asian context

  • Understandability

  • Orginality

  • Timeliness

APPENDIX B – CONFERENCE TOPICS
The theme for the 16th EAAC titled ”Venture into Uncertainty Capture Oppurtinities!” provides a good background on the volatile economic backdrop that is seen in the world today. Following the recovery of the 2008-09 financial crisis, the world had expected a smooth recovery to a period of good growth. However natural catastrophes and an ever changing political maelstorm has affected this perceived view of economic recovery.
As actuaries, we are naturally experts in quantifying and qualifying the risks that we face and it is with these skills that we hope the 16th EAAC will allow the actuarial profession to take a lead and provide guidance to the uncertain financial world that we face right now.
The Programme Committee has put forth suggested topics as below however speakers are encouraged to bring forth any further topics that they feel is beneficial to the audience.
Life Insurance Topics

  • Moving away from Book Value basis (e.g. NPV) to Mark-to-Market basis creates more volatility in P&L, hence more uncertainty. How are actuaries capturing the opportunities? How have our traditional skills evolved?

  • More disclosure, TCF etc – More uncertainty? What are the opportunities available? How are actuaries capitalising on this?

  • Internal model – actuarial solution to dealing with uncertainty? Are actuaries well equipped to do this? What are other opportunities for the profession?

General Insurance Topics



  • Are actuaries practicing in GI playing a lesser role compared to their counterparts in Life? FCR for GI? Actuaries role in underwriting, claims and senior management? What are other opportunities?

  • De-tariff – impact to policyholders and insurer

  • The ever increasing natural catastrophes seen in the world today, are they any different than what happened in the past and how it affects premium rates and underwriting?
