How to Write an Abstract

The purpose of an abstract is to provide a brief summary of your research. They are typically written to summarize research published in academic journal articles, but they can also be produced for research proposals or conferences presentations. 

A conference abstract summarizes, in a single paragraph, the main elements of a paper that you would like to present at a conference. Conference organizers use your abstract to determine if your work should be accepted and included in the conference, and conference attendees will read your abstract to determine if they should attend your presentation or read your paper. 

Please see the resources below for tips about how to write an abstract.
