Working Together to Improve the Mathematical Science Community

The Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) is an umbrella organization consisting of seventeen professional societies all of which have as one of their primary objectives the increase or diffusion of knowledge in one or more of the mathematical sciences. Its purpose is to promote understanding and cooperation among these national organizations so that they work together and support each other in their efforts to promote research, improve education, and expand the uses of mathematics.

2018 Call for Proposals

The NSF intends to support up to six CBMS Regional Research Conferences in 2018. Each five day conference features a distinguished lecturer who delivers ten lectures in one focused area of research in the mathematical sciences. The lecturer then prepares a monograph to reach a broader audience. Support is provided for about 30 participants to attend and is aimed to give recent entrants to the field a deeper understanding of major problems and current directions of research.
