2022 Human Mortality Database (HMD) Users Conference


L'Institut des actuaires est partenaire de la Conférence HMD 2022 sur le thème Mortalité par cause de décès.

Cet évènement est co-organisé par HMD, AXA, Milliman, Scor et l’Université Paris Dauphine.

Les Conférences annuelles HMD ont débuté il y a 5 ans afin de favoriser les échanges entre les démographes (y compris les experts HMD) et les actuaires :

  • HMD souhaite comprendre les besoins des actuaires et savoir comment ils utilisent les données HMD dans leurs modèles pour prédire la mortalité future.
  • Les actuaires souhaitent connaître les nouveaux développements de l'HMD et le point de vue des démographes sur les tendances de la mortalité.

L'événement se déroule les 4 et 6 octobre 2022.

L'inscription à une des 2 journées vous permet de participer à l'ensemble de l'événement.

Her areas of interest are geographic and international variations in mortality in high-income countries in general and in the United States and France in particular, with a special focus on medical causes of death.

Marie-Pier Bergeron Boucher

Marie-Pier is an Assistant Professor at the Interdisciplinary Centre on Population Dynamics (CPop) at the University of Southern Denmark.

She is a demographer interested in the study of human mortality, longevity and ageing, with a particular interest in exploring new demographic methods to help understand and forecast changes in health and mortality in industrialised societies.

Her research can be divided into three broad strands:

  • Mortality forecasting, including the development of new models;
  • Lifespan differentials, with a focus on developing and applying decomposition methods;
  • Changes in the causes of death structure.

Andrew Cairns

Andrew Cairns is Professor of Actuarial Mathematics at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh and at the Maxwell Institute for Mathematical Sciences.

He is well known both in the UK and internationally for his research in financial risk management for pension plans and life insurers. In recent years his research has focused on the modelling of longevity risk: how this can be modelled, measured and priced, and how it can be transferred to the financial markets. Amongst his work in this field, he has developed a number of new and innovative stochastic mortality models.

He is a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Scotland's national academy of science and letters.

Papa Cheikh Fall

Cheikh works within the Risk Department of Generali France. He is responsible for the ERM and Aggregation activities.

With more than 7 years of experience in the Risk Management framework, Cheikh is particularly dedicated to the understanding of what insurers can do to better prepare themselves and ensure a high degree of resilience in face of the uncertainty related to emerging risks impact.

Cheikh is a member of the French Actuaries Institute. He is a Certified Actuary, and an ERM Expert. He holds the Chartered Enterprise Risk Analyst (CERA) accreditation

He works as a Life Consultant at Milliman in Paris, and he is a member of the French Actuarial Institute (Institut des Actuaires).

During his internship at Milliman, he wrote a thesis about the integration of climate change in the modelling of biometric and financial risks. On the biometric part, the objective is to propose a model, which is derived from a Lee Carter model,  able to capture the impact of temperatures on the level of mortality rates and their fluctuations over time.

Al Klein

Al Klein received his Bachelor of Science degree in Actuarial Science and Finance from the University of Illinois, Urbana.

He is a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries (SOA) and Member of the American Academy of Actuaries.

Daniel Meier

Daniel holds a diploma in Mathematics and a PhD with in Computer Science, both from University of Konstanz in Germany.

He joined Swiss Re in 2008, working in Risk Management where he was essential for the development of Swiss Re's Group Risk Model used for regulators and internal capital allocation.

Daniel is a fully qualified actuary of the Swiss Actuarial Association, where he also actively contributes to the Data Science working group, and joined the Swiss Re Institute as member of the Life & Behaviour R&D team in 2020, where he is working on individual health forecasting models.

France Mesle

France Meslé is a physician and demographer, Directrice de recherche émérite at INED (French Institute for Demographic Studies in Paris). Her researches are mainly devoted to mortality and causes of death, especially long-term trends in causes of death, health crisis in Eastern Europe, and trends in mortality at old ages. Beyond the long and sometimes tedious process of reconstruction of continuous series of deaths by cause over several decades for a large range of industrialized countries, her principal aim is to contribute to enrich the theory of health transition and to give solid bases to future mortality prospects.

She headed INED Research Unit “Mortality, Health, Epidemiology”. She was Editor of Population and of the European Journal for Population. She was the 2013-17 Secretary General and Treasurer of the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP).

Andrea Nigri

Andrea is a postdoctoral researcher in statistics in the Department of Social and Political Sciences at Bocconi University. He has an interdisciplinary background with a focus in Statistics and its application to Demography, obtained through a Ph.D. at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Department of Statistics, and through the European Doctoral School of Demography, a pan-European Ph.D. training program, held at the Max-Planck Institute for Demographic Research and the University of Southern Denmark.

He works on developing Statistical methodologies applied to Demography.  His research on Regression trees and Neural Networks, aiming to improve or replace traditional mortality models, served as a bridge between Longevity analysis and Machine Learning. His current research focuses on the indirect estimation of vital rates from summary demographic measures, and on modelling mortality by causes-of-death.
