Workshop on Efficient Coding and Resource-Limited Cognition

Workshop on Efficient Coding and Resource-Limited Cognition

Organizers: Michael Woodford and Rava Azeredo da Silveira
Speaker gender ratio: 2 women : 6 men (25%)*
Estimated** base rate of women in the field: 17-20%

*Note that the two women speakers are PhD students, whereas all men speakers are faculty. This further exacerbates the imbalance of men and women speakers.
**Method of estimation: Previously established base rate of women in computational neuroscience.
