Matariki Winter School & Symposium on “Sex hormones and the brain”

Organizers: Birgit Derntl and Manfred Hallschmid
Sponsors: Rectorate of the University of Tübingen and Universitätsbund Tübingen e.V
Invited speaker gender ratio: 8 women : 3 men (73%)
Estimated* base rate of females in the field: 53%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword sex AND hormones AND (brain OR neuro) and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 10 pages of results using our python script.

5th Baltic-Nordic School on Neuroinformatics (BNNI 2017)

5th Baltic-Nordic School on Neuroinformatics (BNNI 2017)

Faculty gender ratio: 3 women : 6 men (33%)
Estimated* base rate of females in the field: 17%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword neuroinformatics and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 29 results using our python script. This ratio from a small number of results conforms with our previously established base rate of women in computational neuroscience (17-20% at the time of writing.)
