Midwest Workshop on Big Neuroscience Data, Tools, Protocols, and Services

Advanced Computational Neuroscience Network (ACNN) Midwest Workshop on Big Neuroscience Data, Tools, Protocols, and Services

Organizers: Ivo Dinov, Rich Gonzales, George Alter, Franco Pestilli, Olaf Sporns, Andrew Saykin, Dhabaleswar Panda, Khaled Hamidouche, Xiaoyi Lu, Hari Subramoni, Satya Sahoo, Daniel Marcus and Lei Wang (this has got to be a record: 13(!) organizers, all(!) of them men)
Funded by: The National Science Foundation, the Midwest Big Data Hub, the Michigan Nutrition Obesity Research Center (MNORC) and others
Speaker gender ratio: 0 talks by Women : 14 talks by Men (0%)
Estimated* base rate of females in the field: 17-20%

*Method of estimation: since the workshop covers a broad array of topics in neuroscience, with an emphasis on computational methods (a “complex/information/dynamical systems” focus and links to mathematics and physics), we used the previously established base rate of women in computational neuroscience.
