Computational and Systems Neuroscience (Cosyne 2020)

Computational and Systems Neuroscience (Cosyne 2020)

Organizers: Anne-Marie Oswald and Srdjan Ostojic (Program Chairs)
Sponsors: The Gatsby Charitable Foundation, Burroughs Wellcome Fund, DeepMind, Simons Foundation
Keynote speaker gender ratio: 6 Women : 7 Men (40%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 17-18%

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

Neuromatch 2.0 An unconference in Computational Neuroscience

Organizers: Dan Goodman, Konrad Kording, Brad Wyble, Titipat Achakulvisut, Tim Vogels, Chris Rozell, Yiota Poirazi, Grace Lindsay
Sponsors: see here
Speaker gender ratio: 8 Women: 6 Men (57%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 17-20%

*Method of estimation: Previously established base rate of women in computational neuroscience.

Virtual Dopamine Conference (ViDA 2020)

Virtual Dopamine Conference (ViDA 2020)

Organizers: Lindsay Cameron, Ben Engelhard, Rebekah Evans, Christine Liu,
Ali Mohebi
Keynote speaker gender ratio: 5 women: 1 men (83%)
Estimated* base rate of females in the field: 34%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword dopamine and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 62 pages of results using our python script. We left 30 names unclassified. The base rate therefore could range from 33%-35%.

Bernstein Conference 2020

Bernstein Conference 2020

Organizers: Elad Schneidmann (Program Chair), Julijana Gjiorgjieva (Program Vice Chair)
Speaker gender ratio: 5 Women : 6 Men (45%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 17-18%

*Method of estimation: Since the conference is advertised as “the largest annual Computational Neuroscience Conference in Europe” we used the base rate in the field of computational neuroscience as calculated from attendance at COSYNE 2016.
