Abstract : The Board on Mathematical Sciences (BMS), National Research Council was established in 1984. The Board has one standing committee, the Committee on Applied and Theoretical Statistics (CAT'S). The Board, CAT'S, and other ad hoc committees, panels, and working groups established by the Board typically comprise at any one time over 200 mathematical scientists, other scientists, engineers, and medical personnel. The major activities of the Board involve: annual mathematical sciences department chairs colloquium, annual national science and technology symposium, health of the mathematical sciences, articulating emerging research directions, mathematical sciences interacting with other areas, mathematical sciences education, recommendations to federal agencies on research directions, international representation. The BMS is a catalyst, convener, coordinator, and consensus builder for the mathematical sciences on the national level. It follows a policy of inclusion. It undertakes to do those activities that are necessary for nationwide reform and revitalization but are unlikely to be carried out effectively by other organizations. Mathematical sciences.
