Workshop "Increase Your Visibility: Writing an Effective Abstract"
After the title, abstract is the second and the only really informative part of the paper that literally everybody reads. An effective abstract can promote the paper and its author and ensure their visibility in the academic world. In the workshop we will talk about the requirements to an abstract, its components, structure, and useful expressions for each part that will help you formulate your ideas effectively. We will also compare conventions in different disciplines and journals, practice writing abstracts and evaluate them using a set of criteria.
