International Mortality and Longevity Symposium 2016: September, Royal Holloway, University of London
This conference provided a multi-disciplinary forum for the exchange of information on the latest relevant research, and was also an opportunity to learn about established knowledge from a range of different disciplines, all with the aim of better understanding and managing this complex yet critical subject.
The themes for this event were:
- how will population longevity develop in the future in your defined country or internationally?
- new evidence or analyses of historical morbidity and mortality patterns
- what would disrupt current mortality trends?
- how will Big Data and 'internet of things' contribute to mortality trends and analyses?
- new techniques for mortality and longevity analyses and forecasting
- implication of mortality and morbidity trends.
The IFoA has produced an online publication which includes articles by each plenary speaker, workshop abstracts and delegate views

Climate change is one of the greatest risks facing our world today. Addressing it will require multi-faceted solutions. Through this panel session, we will explore the different levers that can be used to meet net-zero targets including climate science and data, government engagement, and mobilising green finance.
