Call for Papers

Risk Theory Society Annual Seminar

  • May 20-22, 2022
  • Hankamer School of Business
  • Baylor University
  • Waco, TX
  • Submissions due December 15, 2021

The Risk Theory Society is a group of economists, financial economists, and actuaries who undertake theoretical and applied research in the areas of insurance economics, financial economics related to insurance markets, actuarial science, and more generally in the economic analysis of risk and uncertainty. Membership in the society is earned by presenting a paper at the annual seminar and forfeited by missing two consecutive meetings.

The society invites interested parties to submit papers for the 2022 meeting. Each paper accepted for the meeting is given one hour and fifteen minutes for presentation and defense by the authors. The first twenty minutes of that time are reserved to be free of interruption other than for questions of clarification. After the grace period, discussion is typically vigorous.

Over the past 10 years, the number of submissions ranged from 42 to 69 with an average of 46. Ten papers were selected each year (except in 2021 when the meeting was virtual and abbreviated). We accept submission of a five-page abstract. Although most submissions and most accepted papers are likely to be in full draft or essentially completed form, we actively encourage submission of work-in-progress that would benefit from the typically robust discussions that take place during the RTS Seminar.

PAPER SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Submissions are due on December 15, 2021. The program committee will notify authors of accepted papers by end of January 2022, or soon thereafter. Accepted papers must be completed and sent for posting on the Risk Theory Society web page by March 1, 2022.

Submissions should be e-mailed as attachments in the Adobe Portable Document Format (pdf) by December 15, 2021, to:
