Discover the Structure
We’ve prepared for you a standard guide to follow while writing your abstract for the Lecture Competition. Down bellow you can find a universal structure for such documents, from which you can build your own creation. Don’t forget that anyone fascinated about science is invited to participate. We are more than excited to see you join the competition and come to our meeting as an active participant in either of the accepted sections: Case Reports & Research.
Your abstract must fit within the maximum limit of 300 words. Don’t forget to take in account this limitation while writing your entry. We know that it can be difficult to express all your creative ideas in such a small number of words, but, most of the times, delivering ideas in more clearer and shorter sentences can aid in creating the best outcome.
Authors & Qualifications
Don’t forget to mention the authors and co-authors of your paper, which can be a maximum of 5. It’s also very important to add everyone qualifications and academic status. To make this requirement more clearly, take a look at the example bellow:
» John Doe, Assoc. Prof. PhD, MD, MsC
In the scientific world, writing your abstract usually needs to follow the universal IMRaD structure, already a norm in all fields. To be considered valid, your abstract should be structured in accordance to this formula, thus containing the following sections: Introduction, Purpose, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussions, Conclusion and Key-words (3-5).
Lastly, depending on the type or article that you are writing, you need to limit your presentation to the following durations:
» Case Report: 3 minutes to deliver your ideas
» Research: 6 minutes to present your finding
We know that it can sound very limiting, but try to resume your speech only to what matters the most in your scientific work.
