Organizers: Manish Sreenivasa
Invited speaker gender ratio: 4 Women : 18 Men (18%)
Estimated* base rate of females in the field: 30%
*Method of estimation: Searching NIH RePORTER with the term “neuromechanics” brought 13 results, 12 unique PIs, out of them 2 women (17%). As the conference website notes that “talks will be delivered by researchers working in computational neuroscience, biomechanics, clinical gait analysis and rehabilitation robotics”, we also searched with those terms (with an OR relationship) and obtained 34 pages of results. We then counted the percentage of women out of unique PIs on pages 10 and 20.
