International Inaugural Conference of the Institut de l’Audition

International Inaugural Conference of the Institut de l’Audition

Organizers: Christine Petit, Paul Avan, Brice Bathellier, Nicolas Michalski

Sponsors: Fondation Pour l’Audition, Institut Pasteur, Inserm, ENP
Speaker gender ratio: 7 Women : 24 Men (23%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 32-37%

*Method of estimation: Previously established base rate of women in auditory neuroscience.

6th International Workshop on Technologies for Optogenetics and Neurophotonics

6th International Workshop on Technologies for Optogenetics and Neurophotonics

Organizers: Tommaso Fellin, Massimo De Vittorio, Ferruccio Pisanello
Speaker gender ratio: 1 woman : 15 men (6%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 28%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword Optogenetics OR Neurophotonics and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 78 pages of results using our python script. We left 115 names unclassified, the base rate therefore could range from 26%-33%.

The 8th International Meeting of the Integrated Brain and Behavior Research Center at the University of Haifa

The 8th International Meeting of the Integrated Brain and Behavior Research Center at the University of Haifa

Organizers: Roee Admon, Oded Klavir
Speaker gender ratio: 11 women : 22 men (33%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 44%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword neuro AND behavior and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 64 pages of results using our python script. We left 144 names unclassified, the base rate therefore could range from 40%-49%.

7th International Symposium on Motivational and Cognitive Control

7th International Symposium on Motivational and Cognitive Control (MCC 2019)

Organizers: Claudia Danielmeier, Tanja Endrass, Markus Ullsperger, Adrian Fischer, Hans Kirschner, Julia Rogge
Speaker gender ratio: 9 Women : 16 Men (36%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 47%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword motivation OR “cognitive control” and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 99 pages of results using our python script. We left 206 names unclassified, the base rate therefore could range from 43%-51%.
