Abstract

This paper aims to provide guidance on developing a strategy for writing a competitive and high quality abstract to increase the likelihood of it being accepted at a targeted conference. Well-presented abstracts play a crucial role in stimulating intellectual curiosity, and in ‘branding’ the relevance of new ideas and concepts to an audience succinctly and concisely. How the information is conveyed is a skilled activity that demands focused thinking and clarity in the use of language. To enhance appreciation of the core principles, this paper will be structured around exploring what is meant by a conference abstract, obtaining relevant information prior to writing, and developing a communication style that is clear, concise, informative and accessible leading to acceptance.
