Call for Papers 

General Information

The Risk Theory Society is a group of economists, financial economists, and actuaries who undertake theoretical and applied research in the areas of insurance economics, financial economics related to insurance markets, actuarial science, and more generally in the economic analysis of risk and uncertainty. Membership in the society is earned by presenting a paper at the annual seminar and forfeited by missing two consecutive meetings.

The society invites interested parties to submit papers for the 2018 meeting. Each paper accepted for the meeting is given one hour and fifteen minutes for presentation and defense by the authors. The first twenty minutes of that time are reserved to be free of interruption other than for questions of clarification. After the grace period, discussion is typically vigorous.

Over the past 10 years, the number of submissions ranged from 42 to 69 with an average of 50. Ten papers were selected each year. Although we accept submission of a five-page abstract, most submissions and most accepted papers were in full draft or essentially completed form.

Paper Submission Procedure

Submissions are due by December 15, 2017. The program committee will notify authors of accepted papers by end of January 2018, or soon thereafter. Accepted papers must be completed and sent for posting on the Risk Theory Society web page by March 1, 2018.

Submissions should be e-mailed as attachments in the Adobe Portable Document Format (pdf) by December 15, 2017, to:

Professor Ty Leverty
Secretary of the Risk Theory Society
Wisconsin School of Business
University of Wisconsin-Madison
