Call for Papers: Modelling and Societal Impact of Longevity and Ageing



The Research Centre for Longevity Risk will be hosting its annual conference in Amsterdam on the 25th and 26th of May 2023. 


We are delighted to welcome our keynote speakers: 

  • Wilbert Ouburg, Chief Risk Officer, NN Leven en Pensioen 
  • An Chen, University of Ulm 
  • Saul Newman, University of Oxford 

At this point, we are also inviting speakers from academia and industry to submit details for contributed talks as we believe a broad perspective is necessary to discuss the impact longevity and ageing will have on society.  Details and a submission form can be found below.

The focus of the conference is on quantitative aspects and policy implications of longevity with particular emphasis on the interplay of economics, demographic transition and societal change.   

Socio-economic differences in mortality have widened in recent decades with some groups experiencing a decline in life expectancy while others are still benefiting from a longer and healthier life. At the same time some causes of death, like cardio-vascular disease, have seen such strong improvements that they are now less common, with other causes becoming more frequent. The conference aims to facilitate an exchange of ideas from researchers who approach the topic of longevity form different angles and to provide a platform for scientific discourse to broaden our understanding of the reasons and consequences of the changing longevity landscape. To inform and guide scientific discussions, empirical results based on quantitative models and data analysis play a central role at the conference.  

We welcome proposals for talks on the following topics:  

  • Modelling Mortality and projecting life expectancy  
  • Multi-population models  
  • Cause of death modelling  
  • Socio-economic differences in mortality  
  • Mortality at high ages  
  • Impact of migration on mortality  
  • Other quantitative research on mortality and longevity  
  • Interaction between changing life expectancy and the economy and wider society – challenges and opportunities  
  • Design of pension products and insurance policies  
  • Intergenerational fairness  
  • Climate change and the effect on longevity  
  • Macroeconomic implications  
  • Financial consequences of the demographic transition  
  • Reinsurance and longevity risk mitigation  
  • International perspective on longevity
