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.
