  • a The gender percentage of ASM members was estimated from the subset of membership data for which the gender information was known. These percentages apply to membership of the society and are not the gender percentages of meeting attendees, since that information was not available. However, the gender percentages do give an indication of likely gender percentages for the full, postdoc, and student attendees.

  • b The total numbers each at the GM and ICAAC meeting include only the full, postdoc, and student members who attended and do not include emeritus members, one-day attendees, exhibitors, and those who attended only workshops. Not all attendees are necessarily ASM members.
