The Art of Writing an Abstract
An abstract is a brief summary of your research / project / work. An abstract is often required when writing a grant proposal, writing a paper for publication, or submitting a proposal to present at a conference. But how do you compellingly distill your work into 300 words or less? This workshop will provide you with useful tips for writing an abstract and give you an opportunity to get started on your own abstract.
