Summer School for Actuaries
3 May 2023 - 5 May 2023
Summer School for Actuaries is organized by the University of Klagenfurt, the School of Management, Organizational Development and Technology (M/O/T), and the Aktuarvereinigung Österreichs (AVÖ). The Summer School will take place from May 3rd until May 5th 2023. This is an excellent opportunity for actuaries to enhance their knowledge and skills through a series of intensive workshops and seminars.
The Summer School for Actuaries aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest trends and techniques in actuarial science. The course starts with „Generalized Linear Models“ (GLMs), but then introduces more flexible regression models such as „Regression Trees“, „Random Forests“ and „Gradient Boosting“. In the second half of the course, neural networks and deep learning algorithms are discussed. The aim is to present a kind of „toolbox“ of algorithms, together with various applications in insurance. Exercises and application examples are presented in the programming language «R».
The program is designed to be interactive and will provide participants with ample opportunity to engage with experts in the field and share their experiences.
The Summer School for Actuaries is an ideal platform for young actuaries, students, and professionals seeking to expand their knowledge base and improve their skills. The program is designed to be intensive and will provide participants with an opportunity to learn from experts in the field. You can find further information here.
The Summer School for Actuaries will take place at the University of Klagenfurt. We have arranged for accommodation and meals for the duration of the program, so participants can focus on learning and networking.
