How To Write An Abstract
A conference abstract is a short summary of the presentation you hope to give. It should include the following information:
Title of presentation: Titles are most effective if they are short, attention grabbing, and clearly describe the content of the presentation.
Affiliation of presenter(s): If your presentation is connected to your professional role you should include information about the organisation you work for or carry out research at.
Background :This is usually the shortest section of an abstract. It should describe what is already known about the subject of your presentation, and what needs further exploration.
Approach (sometimes referred to as Methods): This section of an abstract provides information about how you went about your research, why you chose a particular approach, what the approach entailed. You can also mention any limitations associated with the approach you took to the topic.
Results/Findings: This is usually the longest section of an abstract. It provides an overview of what you found out from your project, what is significant about your findings, and how they might be used moving forward.
Conclusion: A conclusion can be the place where you (re)state your take home message.
Stick to the word limit
Use plain English where possible
