CAS Calls for Monographs on Predictive Modeling

The Casualty Actuarial Society, in conjunction with the CAS Monograph Committee and the CAS Syllabus Committee, is pleased to extend a Call for Monographs on the topic of “Predictive Modeling in P&C Insurance Ratemaking and Pricing.” The purpose of this call is to develop a source of literature with emphasis on the educational and professional needs of actuaries to foster better understanding of predictive modeling in P&C ratemaking and pricing and to generate publicly available models and methods.

This topic covers modern pricing methods, including simulation and various kinds of predictive modeling. Monographs in this series can range from compendia of nontraditional pricing techniques in P&C insurance to detailed notes on one or more of the modern pricing methodologies. A list of sample topics can be found on the complete Call for Monographs (

Proposals should be submitted by December 1, 2014. Authors of monographs that are accepted within the proposed timeline may be invited to present their work at the 2016 CAS Ratemaking and Product Management Seminar, currently scheduled for March 14-16, 2016. Authors must submit their work in accordance with the Guidelines for Submission of Monographs published on the CAS Web Site.

Please view the Call for Monographs for complete information on submission policies and deadlines. Questions may be addressed to Donna Royston at
