Risk Theory Society Annual Seminar

The Risk Theory Society, originally founded in August, 1963 as the Risk Theory Seminar, is a self-administered organization within the American Risk and Insurance Association (ARIA) whose purpose is to foster research into topics in risk theory and risk management. The Society accomplishes its mission by hosting an annual meeting where papers that have been distributed to members in advance of the meeting are presented and critically discussed in an extended time format. The Society has financial resources to provide assistance to authors who present papers.
