Organizers: Nikolaus Kriegeskorte (Chair), Danielle Bassett, Daphna Shohamy, Konrad Kording, Ralf Haefner
Keynote speaker gender ratio: 3 women : 4 men (43%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 30%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword (cognitive OR cognition) AND (computation OR computational) AND neuro and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 9 pages of results using our python script.
