Generalized Linear Models (GLMs), statistical tools generating increasing interest among casualty actuaries, are the focus of the 2004 CAS Discussion Paper Program. Authors will present papers written for the program during sessions at the CAS Spring Meeting, scheduled for May 16-19, 2004 at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The 2004 Discussion Paper Program concentrates on the practical application of GLM, with papers touching on a wide range of topics.
"We are pleased with the quality of the papers submitted, which represent the work of some of the leading experts in the field. We expect the Spring Meeting presentations to benefit GLM practitioners at all experience levels," commented Roger Bovard, Chairperson of the 2004 Discussion Paper Program.
A complete list of papers to be presented, with their abstracts, will be posted online with other 2004 CAS Spring Meeting information as soon as it is available.
The Michelbacher Prize, in the amount of $1,500, will be awarded to the author of the best paper and presented at the 2004 CAS Spring Meeting. Papers will be published in the Discussion Paper Program book and online before the meeting.
