Writing a winning abstract is an essential academic skill, but it is not a straightforward task.  Good abstract writing requires a clear, cohesive and above all concise approach.  This workshop will combine short interactive lectures with a series of practical writing and editing exercises.  Anyone who is planning on preparing an abstract for submission to a conference or who is working on an abstract for a manuscript would benefit from this workshop.

 

Topics covered include:

 

• the structure and main components of the abstract

• strategies for writing an effective abstract

• the conference abstract selection process and why abstracts are not accepted

• evaluation and discussion of good/bad abstracts and strategies for improvement
