Between March 1 and May 2, 2011, the committee held a series of conference calls with the following leading researchers in the mathematical sciences:

Emery Brown, Massachusetts General Hospital

Ronald Coifman, Yale University

David Donoho, Stanford University

Cynthia Dwork, Microsoft Research

Charles Fefferman, Princeton University

Jill Mesirov, Broad Institute

Assaf Naor, New York University

Martin Nowak, Harvard University

Adrian Raftery, University of Washington

Terence Tao, University of California, Los Angeles

Richard Taylor, Harvard University

The purpose of these calls was to identify important trends and opportunities for the discipline, drawing on the diverse perspectives of research frontiers, and also to discuss any concerns these experts have about the future. The calls were very helpful, and some of the observations presented contributed to Chapters 3 and 5. Insights from these conference calls helped the committee select the recent advances that it highlighted in Chapter 2, and they also contributed to the identification of trends discussed in Chapter 4.
