Schedule Overview (regular sessions at UPF)
International Conference on Risk Analysis
ICRA 6 / RISK 2015
Barcelona, May 26 - 29, 2015
The ICRA 6 / RISK 2015 conference objective is to assemble researchers
and practitioners from universities, institutions and industries from
around the world, involved in these fields, and to encourage mutual
exchange and collaboration in international research projects.
The conference is organized by five Catalan universities, including: Open
University of Catalonia (UOC), University of Barcelona (UB), Technical
University of Catalonia (UPC), Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB),
and Pompeu Fabra University (UPF).
The ICRA conference is also organized with the ISI Committee on Risk
Analysis (ISI-CRA) of the International Statistical Institute.
The Committee on Risk Analysis of the International Statistical Institute
(ISI-CRA) is in charge of improving and expanding the role of statistics in
Risk Analysis. It does this by addressing theory and methodology
applications that cover the broad scope of risk assessment & management
in life sciences and public health, sciences of the environment and
behavior, economics and finance, industrial risks, adversarial risks and
issues of societal security. The ISI-CRA is one (out of nine) Special Interest
Groups of the ISI.
RISK is a regular biannual event that was originally launched in 2005 by UB
Risk Center, the University of Barcelona research group on Risk in Finance
and Insurance. The sessions of RISK2015 will include the following topics:
Credit, Market and Operational Risk Management and Measurement,
Economic, Insurance and Financial Analysis for Insurance Companies,
Financial and Banking Crisis, Regulatory Framework: Solvency II and Basel
III, New Developments in Insurance Products, Statistical Methods for
Insurance and Finance, Demography and Life Insurance, Economics of
Insurance and Long Term Care.

Musical Performance
Karol Green - voice and loop station
If there are no instruments accompanying her singing, Karol
Green creates music with her body. And then when there are
instruments she quickly gathers rhythm and bursts into musical
rhapsody. In fact, Karol is so open with music, melody and all
other things connected to it, it seems like a whole new musical
world opening up and engulfing the onlooker. Of South African
origin and now living near Barcelona, Karol admits she initially
never had any formal training. Her school has been the large
number of musical projects during her fourteen years in
Barcelona, and which she continues to be passionately involved
with. Several projects and trends include body percussion, neosoul, world music, gospel, ska and African music. She has also established herself as a choir
leader in Catalonia, presently conducting Soulchoir, Gospelians de Girona and Cor Gospel
Gracia, the last two choirs being well known for their participation in the TV3 contest 'Oh
Happy Day'. More info: www.facebook.com/karolgreenmusic
Adri González - keyboard
If there is one pianist accompanying Karol, it must be Adri. They have worked together in
numerous musical projects for the past eight years. Adri is a graduate in keyboard playing from
the prestigious Catalan Music University (ESMUC) and has a professional degree in classical
piano from the Barcelona Municipal Conservatory. He has collaborated with many different
artists, moving effortlessly between different musical genres such as pop, jazz, gospel and
classical. Born and living in Barcelona, intensely involved with music, he has also worked in
music production for various bands and publishers, and has recorded with many musicians at a
national level.
1. ICRA time
Original song Summertime by George Gershwin, adapted by Michael Greenacre for ICRA.
2. Taking a Chance
Jazz standard adapted by Michael Greenacre, especially for ICRA.
3. Little Fish of the Sea
Karol's version of the Brazilian traditional song Peixinhos do Mar, in her unique body
percussion and loopstation style.

Keynote Speakers
Prof. Dr. Hansjörg Albrecher
Prof. Dr. Hansjörg Albrecher is Professor of
Actuarial Science at the University of Lausanne
and has been an SFI faculty member since
December 2010. Prof. Albrecher is a regular
speaker at leading conferences on insurance.
He has published extensively and also serves
on the editorial board of the top academic
journals in his areas of research expertise.
His research focuses on quantitative aspects of
insurance and risk management.
Among his recent studies, Prof. Albrecher and his co-authors apply a
game-theory approach to study competition among non-life insurers. They
expand the existing literature by considering a lapse model together with
an aggregate loss model for policyholders and a solvency constraint for
insurers. Using different equilibrium concepts, including aspects of market
leadership, the impact of competition on optimal premium levels is
investigated and illustrated by numerical illustrations of the game. The
researchers show that market competition leads to a significant deviation
of premium levels from equilibria for purely actuarial premiums.
International Conference on Risk Analysis
ICRA 6 / RISK 2015
Barcelona, May 26 - 29, 2015
Prof. Dr. Mei-Ling Tin Lee
Dr. Mei-Ling Ting Lee is Professor in the
Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics
and Director of the Biostatistics and Risk
Assessment Center (BRAC) at the University of

medical areas. She has many years of
experience in analyzing large scale high-dimensional data sets drawn from
genomics and proteomics.
Dr. Lee's current research is focused in the following areas: (a) Threshold
Regression Models for Risk Assessments: with Applications in Cancer,
Environmental Research and Occupational Exposure; (b) Statistical
Methods for Genomic and Proteomic Data; (c) Rank-based Nonparametric
Tests for Correlated Data: with Applications in Epidemiology and
Genomics; (d) Statistical Applications in Microbiology and
Pharmacokinetics;(e) Multivariate Distributional Theory and Applications.
Dr. Lee has published a single-authored monograph titled "Analysis of
Microarray Gene Expression Data" in 2004 which has been widely used as
a reference/textbook. The book includes several chapters on machine
learning bioinformatics methods. Dr. Lee also co-edited three other books.
Dr. Lee is the founding editor and editor-in-chief of the international
journal Lifetime Data Analysis, the only international statistical journal
that is specialized in modeling time-to-event data. The journal is currently
