The situatedness of researchers and developers influences the whole research process from ideas to methods to results. To assess the diversity of perspectives in the QoE field, we conducted a quantitative content analysis of QoMEX proceedings authorship examining five years of the locality of authors (20152019) and two years of gender and author type (2018-2019). Our results reveal the predominance of WEIRD, i.e. Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, and Democratic, authorship and the under-representation of female authorship, along with other alarming trends. Hence, we conclude with potential measures to counteract this development.
