Attending conferences is a tremendous opportunity to present research, exchange ideas and discuss with peers. Having one’s abstract selected is a major determinant to, not only attending but, participating at the conference. However, writing a conference abstract can be a challenge. By the end of this workshop, participants will know how to write and submit a well-written conference abstract and increase chances of acceptance. The main part of the workshop covers the practical aspects of writing an abstract, focusing on its structure and the content required in each section. The workshop also provides key take-home messages and offers examples to illustrate both good practice and common mistakes to avoid. Short exercises are used to enhance the learning experience, using audience participation and comprehensive handouts. In addition, participants learn the formal requirements that need to be met and how their abstracts are reviewed, scored and selected by the conference.
