Link to the Conference Agenda

Organisers:
Dan Goodman, Konrad Kording, Brad Wyble, Titipat Achakulvisut, Chris Rozell, Yiota Poirazi, Megan Peters, Bing Brunton, Anne Urai, Jennifer Bizley, Alberto Antonietti, Jeremy Forest

Invited speakers gender ratio: 2 Women: 3 Men (40%)
Estimated base rate of women in the field: 26%*
BWN rating: 3 (i.e. within or at 1 standard deviation above base rate)

*Method of estimation: previously established base rate of women in the field of computational neuroscience.

Society for Neuroscience 2021 Symposium: Craniofacial Neuroscience – Mechanisms and Translational Therapies

Craniofacial Neuroscience Virtual Symposium [program link]

Organisers:
Limor Avivi-Arber
Teresa Lever
Kazutaka Takahashi

Invited speakers gender ratio: 3 Women: 5 Men (38%)
Estimated base rate of women in the field: 29%*
BWN rating: 3 (i.e. within or at 1 standard deviation above base rate)

*Method of estimation: calculated by counting the total number of women among the unique PI names in a NIH RePORTER grant search using the keyword “craniofacial neuroscience”.

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.
