The Association Internationale de Droit des Assurances (AIDA) Europe Scientific Committee, invites the submission of academic papers for the VIIth AIDA Europe Conference to be held on April 12-13, 2018 in Warsaw, Poland.
The theme of the conference is “De-Mystifying InsurTech–a Legal and Regulatory View”. This conference aims 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. Theoretical, empirical and policy-oriented papers are welcome by legal academics (including PhD students) and legal practitioners on the themes of insurance contract law and new technologies, sharing economy, digital distribution, data protection, autonomous vehicles, Big data, etc.
Applicants must submit an abstract (1-2 pages) in English. The AIDA Europe Scientific Committee invites students and young academics/practitioners who are no more than 35 year old to submit their abstracts. A small number of papers will be selected for presentation at the Warsaw Conference and their authors will be invited to the conference and will be awarded the costs of flight plus the costs of up to two nights’ accommodation.
