Organization: 

The AIDA Europe Scientific Committee

The AIDA Europe Scientific Committee, comprising Prof. Dr. Pierpaolo Marano and Dr. Kyriaki Noussia, invites the submission of academic papers for the VIIth AIDA Europe Conference to be held in Warsaw, Poland on 12-13/4/2018.

This conference will bring legal scholars and practitioners together, so as to explore and discuss legal and regulatory developments and issues emerging from innovations in the realm of technology applied to (re)insurance, i.e. 'InsurTech'. Invited speakers will present papers which will provide insights into the legal developments affecting both (re)insurance communities and society in Europe and in other jurisdictions. The goal is to provide information on recent developments in the field of InsurTech law and regulation and in doing so to also provide a forum for debating and developing the law and policy in this newly emerging legal field.

SELECTED PAPERS from the area of InsurTech will be published in a book edited by Prof. Pierpaolo Marano, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Milan, Italy and Dr. Kyriaki Noussia, University of Exeter, UK. The book will be included in the soon to be established AIDA Europe Research Series on Insurance Law and Regulation and will be published from a renowned publisher.

AIDA SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE AWARD FOR YOUNG AUTHORS:

The AIDA Europe Scientific Committee also invites students and young academics/practitioners who are no more than 35 years old, to submit their abstracts of prospective papers for potential selection.

AIDA Europe (International Association of Insurance Law) was established in 2007 as a non-profit organization with the aim of promoting, either directly or through its members, the development of insurance and related law. AIDA Europe organizes conferences, which offer a platform for an open and solution minded dialogue on key developments in the area of insurance, reinsurance and related law also supporting its members in their respective endeavours. Conferences are open to all stakeholders and are indeed attracting representatives from all areas such as the insurance sector, academia, private practice, regulatory authorities or the law making. AIDA Europe also maintains a keen focus on supporting the development of young academic talents by sponsoring academic work and by inviting young academics to its conferences. AIDA Europe conferences represent a unique platform as they are also combined with the working meetings of the AIDA Working Parties.
