Computational Neurology Conference 2017

Computational Neurology Conference 2017

Organizers: Roman Bauer, Anupam Hazra, Luis Peraza Rodriguez, Peter Taylor, Yujiang Wang
Funders: see here
Invited speaker gender ratio: 0 Women : 9 Men (0%) (currently confirmed)
Estimated* base rate of females in the field: 28%

*Method of estimation: Searching NIH RePORTER with the terms “computational” AND “neurology” returned 8 women and 21 men unique PIs. This is a small sample, however, since the conference is advertised as gathering researchers “applying advances in computing and neuroscience for clinically relevant purposes” other base rates, such as from computational psychiatry are also relevant, and suggest the same number.
