Organizer gender ratio: 4 Women : 10 Men (29%)
Speaker gender ratio: 3 Women : 5 Men (38%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 15%

*Method of estimation: Previously established base rate of women in neurally inspired machine learning.

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%.

Keynote speaker gender ratio: 1 Woman : 2 Men (33%)
Estimated* base rate of females in the field: 15%

*Method of estimation: Previously established base rate of women in neurally inspired machine learning.

2020 International Society for Research on Impulsivity (InSRI) Virtual Meeting

2020 International Society for Research on Impulsivity (InSRI) Virtual Meeting

Organizer: Sarah Yip, Anna Konova, Marc Potenza, Gerry Moeller, Catharine Winstanley and Alan Swann
Speaker gender ratio: 4 women: 5 men (44%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 47%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword impulsivity AND neuro and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 5 pages of results using our python script. We left 1 name unclassified. The base rate is estimated to be 47%.
