VIIth AIDA Europe Conference 2018 : De-Mystifying InsurTech – a Legal and Regulatory View
Call For Papers
The AIDA Europe Scientific Committee, comprising Prof. Dr. Pierpaolo Marano and Dr. Kyriaki Noussia, invites the submission of academic papers for the VIIth AIDA Europe Conference to be held in Warsaw, Poland on 12-13/4/2018.
This conference will bring legal scholars and practitioners together, so as to explore and discuss legal and regulatory developments and issues emerging from innovations in the realm of technology applied to (re)insurance, i.e. 'InsurTech'. Invited speakers will present papers which will provide insights into the legal developments affecting both (re)insurance communities and society in Europe and in other jurisdictions. The goal is to provide information on recent developments in the field of InsurTech law and regulation and in doing so to also provide a forum for debating and developing the law and policy in this newly emerging legal field.
SELECTED PAPERS from the area of InsurTech will be published in a book edited by Prof. Pierpaolo Marano, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Milan, Italy and Dr. Kyriaki Noussia, University of Exeter, UK. The book will be included in the soon to be established AIDA Europe Research Series on Insurance Law and Regulation and will be published from a renowned publisher.
AIDA SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE AWARD FOR YOUNG AUTHORS:
The AIDA Europe Scientific Committee also invites students and young academics/practitioners who are no more than 35 years old, to submit their abstracts of prospective papers for potential selection. A small number of top ranking papers will be selected for presentation at the Warsaw Conference and their authors will be invited to the Conference.
