2020 International Society for Research on Impulsivity (InSRI) Virtual Meeting

2020 International Society for Research on Impulsivity (InSRI) Virtual Meeting

Organizer: Sarah Yip, Anna Konova, Marc Potenza, Gerry Moeller, Catharine Winstanley and Alan Swann
Speaker gender ratio: 4 women: 5 men (44%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 47%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword impulsivity AND neuro and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 5 pages of results using our python script. We left 1 name unclassified. The base rate is estimated to be 47%.

Bernstein Conference 2020

Bernstein Conference 2020

Organizers: Elad Schneidmann (Program Chair), Julijana Gjiorgjieva (Program Vice Chair)
Speaker gender ratio: 5 Women : 6 Men (45%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 17-18%

*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.
