Join us for an interactive presentation on writing abstracts for engineering research. The first half of the workshop will focus on the structure of abstracts while the second half will give participants an opportunity to apply the concepts to their own work. Participants will have an opportunity to work on their own abstracts at the workshop and should bring their work accordingly.
To get the most out of the event, please bring an abstract from your field (your own writing &/or a sample from published work).
