On the 29th February 2012, Dr Emma Foster held a training session on ways of writing abstracts and papers, giving this way the opportunity to students to ask questions and understand better the requirements of an academic conference.
Annual Student Conference 2012
Call for papers advice
Education Building, room 408
Who is it for?
The conference is open to all undergraduate and taught postgraduate students in the School of Government and Society
When and where will it be held?
On Friday 4th May 2012 on campus
How do I get involved?
If you would like to deliver a presentation at the conference then email me a summary/abstract of your presentation topic before the 14th March. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
What is an abstract?
The abstract is a summary of your presentation idea
The purpose of the abstract is, in this instance, to ‘sell’ your presentation idea to a panel in order to potentially be selected to deliver your presentation at the student conference 2012
What should be included in the abstract?
- Motivation/problem statement
Other things to note
This is not an exact science so abstracts will vary by topic
The abstract should be between 200-300 words long
The abstract is being used for selection purposes for the conference and therefore can be altered at a later date for the conference programme
