Submission Form for Abstracts

Abstracts - briefly formulated the main provisions, the concentration of scientific work, article, report, coursework or thesis. Abstracts of a scientific paper include a set of interrelated and logically arranged the main provisions of a full-length paper, in which they must be argued and justified.

Know your target audience

Almost all conferences expect you to present accompanying posters or an oral presentation in addition to attending the session. Many conferences have unlimited space for poster presentations. To be competitive and have the opportunity to publish and effectively present your research at a meeting of scholars, you need to convey the most outstanding and cutting-edge thesis of your research in the text.

Before you begin writing your abstract, be sure to review the conference guidelines for the required report format. This will allow you to determine the word limit and specifics of the paper layout (e.g., structured headings and unstructured abstracts). It is also recommended that you read some abstracts from past meetings as examples.

Formatting an abstract for a conference

An abstract is a 2 to 3 page text that reflects the content, relevance and originality of the article. The text should also contain information about the section of the Conference, the author's (author's) affiliation and contacts.

Writing a text for a scientific conference is different from writing an abstract for a manuscript or a review article. For a conference, the text is usually the only written description of your research that will be available to your audience, and most conferences impose a strict word limit, forcing you to effectively fit the concentration of your research paper into a limited "space."

Requirements for abstract formatting

The average length of an abstract is 3-5 pages, Times New Roman font, 12-14 point, single or single space spacing.

The title should indicate the title of the article, full name of the authors, place of work or accounting, e-mail, as well as country and city. In some cases it is necessary to prepare an abstract and keywords.

Background Information

Your paper should begin with a brief introduction of the general problem you are trying to solve through research and any information the reader may need to understand the importance and rationale for your work. The level of detail you need to include in the background of your thesis will depend on the conference audience. For conferences where all participants will be experts in your field, there is no need to describe background details, so the paper is written in a scientific style, unlike conferences with a broader audience, where participants may be less familiar with your particular research topic and field of science-in which case you should use a popular science text style, avoiding professional and complex terms.
