Workshop: Preparing effective abstracts for conferences and publications

February 16, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Whether you are submitting your work for publication in a biomedical journal or for presentation at a medical conference, the abstract is often the only thing that editors and conference organizers use to make decisions about accepting your work. Thus, it is imperative to prepare an abstract that not only follows the required format and length, but also is informative and can stand on its own in “telling the story” about your work.

This workshop will inform attendees about formats, styles, what to include in an abstract and how to make the best use of the allowed word count. A case study using a hypothetical research study will provide a hands-on opportunity to practice creating a successful abstract based on a limited amount of information.

Facilitated by: Thomas Annesley, Ph.D.; deputy editor, Clinical Chemistry; professor, U-M

Two Sessions:

  • Morning: 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. (Breakfast provided)
