Both APRIA and the IRFRC have long established annual conferences. The Annual IRFRC Conferences since 2011 have been in partnership with the leading global reinsurer SCOR. The 2018 Joint Conference combines two prominent annual conferences into one joint event to maximize the participation by academics and professionals from the region and globally. The 2018 Joint Conference welcomes theoretical or applied research papers on risk-related and insurance-related topics. Specific subject areas include, but are not limited to, catastrophic risks, cyber risk, mortality risk, longevity risk, insurance economics, insurance law & regulation, insurance investment, corporate governance, public policy, health care, social insurance, and insurance education/pedagogical issues.
