Tips for writing and submitting an abstract found here.

Based on this years abstract writing workshop presented by CESBC and credentialed evaluator Beth Snow, we have compiled a list of tips for writing an abstract, as well as provided responses to frequently asked questions to better support your abstract writing. 

Considering submitting an abstract for a poster? Check out our guidelines and tips PDF here.

A poster is only a brief representation of the project or issue. A poster usually contains around 800 to 1000 words (depending on what or how many illustrations you are using) and generally covers aspects such as the most important or interesting finding or thinking from or behind a project, any results (if applicable), and the main take-aways you would like other participants to remember from your work.
