INTRODUCTION

Mathematics and Statistics are the two important tools in finding solutions for a wide range of problems. They can help us solving some of the difficult problems and assist us in making the right decisions at the right time. Regular meeting and interactions among mathematicians, statisticians and scientists in the region will be beneficial to the development of the fields through collaboration. The first HICAAMMC International Conference on Application of Actuarial Science, Mathematics, Management and Computer Science organized by Bishop Heber College, Trichy – 620017, Tamil Nadu, India, on the 7th –8th January, 2019.The scientific program will include plenary addresses and regular presentations.
