BMSA & CATS Impacts



The Board on Mathematical Sciences and Analytics (BMSA) leads activities in the mathematical sciences at the National Academies. We advance knowledge in the field by organizing workshops, webcasts, roundtables, and in-depth studies that explore key issues and applications within the mathematical sciences.  Learn how our reports have influenced policy and practice and how BMSA events advance the discussion on the BMSA Impacts page.
