What is an Abstract?
An abstract/proposal is a short statement about your paper designed to give the reader a complete, yet concise, understanding of your paper's research and findings. It is a mini-version of your paper. A well-prepared abstract allows a reader to quickly and accurately identify the basic content of your paper. Readers should be able to read your abstract to see if the related research is of interest to them.
Proposals for other types of presentations (visual arts, performances, etc.) should provide a short description of the artwork and any relevant material that will aid the audience.
