2/12 - Colloquium

Abstract Writing Workshop with Diti Bhadra
February 12, 2021 - 3:30pm

Writing abstracts for conferences can seem like a daunting task, especially when you have pages and pages of a paper that needs to be compressed into a tight, readable two pages that also has to be interesting enough to hold the attention of reviewers. In this abstract writing workshop, we will demystify the process by analyzing what are the tangible components of a good abstract. We will deconstruct accepted abstracts from high-profile conferences and learn from them, we will discuss what elements of our research we should highlight in abstracts, and discuss how best to finetune the process of seeing our research abstractly and from the point of view of other scholars in the field.
