How to make an abstract

The title of your talk should be informative i.e. reflect the contents of your research.

The abstract is a concise exposition of the paper’s contents. It should present the results of an original scholarly research and show clearly the contribution made by the author in resolving a certain problem.

It is recommended to describe the object and objectives of your research, the particular problems you are facing, the methods you use to solve them and the results you have attained. You can either follow the structure of your paper’s text, or present different parts of your research in different order.

Please, keep in mind that it is judging by the quality of the abstracts that the Organizing committee will select papers to be presented at the conference and group them according to certain sections.

The abstracts will be published shortly before the conference. The best papers will be included into the collection of articles which we usually publish within a year after the conference.

For whatever questions please write at: conference@actual-art.org (with the subject line “For the conference”).
