PRNI 2018: 8th International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Neuroimaging

Organizers: Annabel Chen, Cuntai Guan, Jong-Hwan Lee, Nitish V. Thakor
Sponsors: see here
Keynote speaker gender ratio: 2 Women : 3 Men (40%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 33%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword Pattern AND recognition AND (neuroimaging OR MRI OR fMRI OR DTI OR EEG) and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 5 pages of results using our python script.

February 2018 Journal Watch

Methods:

See our January 2018 Journal Watch post for details on methods.

Base rates:

First authors are more likely to be graduate students or postdoctoral fellows. Using our calculations based on registration for the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, 49% of graduate students and postdocs in neuroscience are women.

For last or sole authors we take the base rate to be 39%,  the percentage of women faculty at the same meeting. We take the base rate for all authors to be the overall percentage of 45%.
