Abstract Writing Workshop Session 1

Scientific communication is an essential but often overlooked skill in higher educational institutions. To address this gap, ASC’22 DEI presents a Virtual Abstract Writing Workshop (VAWW) with the aim to help prepare participants, aimed particularly at students and young professionals, to write higher quality abstracts. Great abstracts should be able to capture the readers’ attention with as little words as possible while conveying an effective summary of their scientific processes and results. Given that the language standard for scientific communication is generally in the English language, persons whose first language is not English face additional challenges in the scientific writing process. This event will address this need by providing examples of good quality abstracts and explore the pitfalls of abstract writing and how to avoid them while providing a particular focus on abstract writing techniques for non-native English speakers. This virtual event will be held during the abstract submission window.
