About the Abstract

This is an interdisciplinary conference, and people not involved with your discipline must be able to understand your abstract. So write the abstract with these people in mind, and have someone who is not in your discipline read it. Abstracts will be read by reviewers, and may be returned for revision if they are unclear, incomplete, more than 250 words, or have grammatical or spelling errors.

Getting Help

For help writing your abstract, contact the Writing Centre in the Queen's Learning Commons.  You can book a consultation for a writing tutor to look over your abstract by calling their number (available on their website) or going in person to their location in Stauffer Library.  You can also register for one of their workshops here: Workshop Registration.
