A short 'How to prepare an abstract':
The first rule of abstract writing is that it should engage the reader by telling what
your paper is about and why it should be read. Although strictly not part of your abstract,
the title of the proposed paper is most important. Short attention-catching titles are the
most effective. However, it is also important, for a conference paper, to ensure that the title
describes the subject you are writing about.
Regarding the body of the abstract you need to make a clear statement of the topic of your paper and your research question. You need to say how your research was/is being undertaken. For example, is it empirical or theoretical? Is it quantitative or qualitative? Of what value are your findings and to whom will they be of use?
The abstract should then briefly describe the work to be discussed in your paper and also give a concise summary of the findings. Finally your abstract should not include diagrams and in general references are not required in the abstract. Also, remember that this abstract will be used in the conference program to describe your presentation.
