“It is a great pleasure host this conference especially for the privilege to have such a distinguished set of speakers for the event from many countries all over the world”, said Dean of the School of Banking, Finance and Insurance Elena Beccalli opening the two-day conference on Thursday 16 June together with Markus Gesmann - Member of the Scientific committee of IDS and Nino Savelli, Member of the Scientific committee of IDS and head of the organising committee of IDS in Catholic University.

“The Conference of today represents a very relevant opportunity for the School of Banking finance and Insurance, for its academics and students, and more generally for the insurance industry. Fifty-six speakers from across the globe will present scientific papers investigating the impact that data science, analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, computational statistics, and software are having on the insurance industry in the international arena”.

Keynotes were given by Julien Trufin, Université libre de Bruxelles, Markus Senn together with Patrick Hogan, Partner Re and Fausto Parente, Executive Director of the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA).

It remains to say thanks to our sponsors, Swiss Re Institute, Banca Mediolanum S.p.A., Leithà Srl, Mirai Solutions, HDI Assicurazioni, and 24hAssistance, without whose generous contributions the conference would not have been possible; the events team at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuor for ensuring everyone could login and enjoy a smooth event; the scientific committee; and, last but not least, all the speakers for their many stimulating talks, answering questions. Thank you all and arrivederci!

Next year the conference will take place at Bayes Business School, City, University of London, UK, 15 – 16 June 2023.
