The Conference by the numbers: We welcomed 190 participants, of whom 85% were women and 30% were students, from 10 countries. There were just over 100 research talks and posters, all presented by women. Twenty five organisers (all women) of our 12 special sessions, four plenary speakers, seven panellists, 16 sponsors. Two years of planning. Warm thanks go to the many people who helped make it happen, and especially to the Conference Steering Committee.
