Spatio-temporal Aspects of Embodied Predictive Processing (ICDL Workshop StEPP’21) – Workshop

Spatio-temporal Aspects of Embodied Predictive Processing (ICDL Workshop StEPP’21)

Organisers: Stefan Heinrich, Shingo Murata, Yukie Nagai & Yuichi Yamashita
Invited speaker gender ratio: 1 Woman: 3 Men (25%)
Estimated base rate of women in the field: 20.5%*
BWN rating: 3

*Method of estimation: as the workshop covered multiple topics, a combination of base rates for computational neuroscience and neurally-inspired machine learning was used.

WWNeuRise Seminar Series: Naturalistic Behavior

WWNeuRise Seminar Series: Naturalistic Behavior

Organizers: Ellen Boven, Christina Buetfering, Lucie Descamps, Gily Ginosar, Loreen Hertäg, Joram Keijser & Bill Podlaski
Invited speaker gender ratio: 4 Women: 4 Men (50%)
Estimated base rate of women in the field: 39%*
BWN rating: 3

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keywords naturalistic behavior, and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers using our python script.
