Sessional Research Event: Extreme Events Working Party Paper
Download the paper by Ralph Frankland (chair) and other members of the Extreme Events working party. The Extreme Events working party will present an afternoon workshop followed by a formal sessional meeting.
The sessional and workshop are now fully booked. The sessional will be filmed and the video will be downloadable from our archive a few days after the event.
Please download the following excel spreadsheets developed by the working party and pre-load to your laotop before the workshop (Please note: you are not required to review the spreadsheets before the workshop):
13:30 - 15:00 Session I: Errors in proxy models
15:00 -15:10 Break
15:10 - 16:30 Session II: Errors in model choice and parameter estimates
Excel spreadsheet #3 (Macros required)
To gain maximum benefit from the workshop, delegates should bring their own laptops and upload the sample spreadsheets provided in advance. Please ensure you have at least two hours of battery life. The models in Session II use VBA macros so please ensure your security settings allow macros.
16:30 - 17:00 Meet the Authors
17:00 - 17:30 Registration
17:30 - 19:00 Sessional meeting
19:00 - 20:00 Drinks reception
Please note, that as a result of member feedback, we will be trialling a new ‘enhanced networking initiative’ at this sessional research meeting.
The purpose of this initiative is to improve integration and networking among members, with particular focus on making those who are newly qualified or new to events, feel encouraged to approach more experienced members and become integrated into the actuarial community.
At each meeting, members who have particular experience in the topic area or those who are happy to be approached by new members and share their experience will be asked to wear a yellow ribbon on their name badge.
We would invite all those members who are happy to wear a yellow ribbon on their name badge to signal that they encourage any member to approach them and ask questions about the sessional meeting, chat or even just to introduce themselves to get in touch with Event Management.
