Computational Systems Neuroscience (COSYNE) 2017

Computational and Systems Neuroscience 2017

Organizers: Anne Churchland, Tony Zador, Alex Pouget and Zach Mainen
Program Chairs: Ilana Witten and Eric Shea-Brown
Invited speaker gender ratio: 7 Women : 7 Men (50%)
Estimated* base rate of females in the field: 17-18%

As COSYNE initiated some of the wider efforts to correctly represent women in neuroscience conferences, indirectly leading to the creation of BiasWatchNeuro, we are especially happy to report that for the first time this conference has achieved gender parity, exceeding the base rate of women in the field and matching the base rate of women in the world.

*Method of estimation: Base rate of women in computational neuroscience previously established through attendance at COSYNE conferences
