Organizers: Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Göttingen (BCCN Göttingen)
Funded by: German Federal Ministry of Education and Research
Invited speaker gender ratio: 6 Women : 6 Men (50%)
Estimated* base rate of females in the field: 17-18%
We are especially happy to see gender parity at the Bernstein Conference, given the history of this annual meeting. May this be the first of many.
*Method of estimation: Since the conference is advertised as “the largest annual Computational Neuroscience Conference in Europe” we used the base rate in the field of computational neuroscience as calculated from attendance at COSYNE 2016.
