We all get swept up in the excitement of attending and possibly presenting at conferences. I recently applied to present at a conference in beautiful Keystone, Colorado
and, unfortunately, just found out my abstract was not chosen.
My disappointment was quickly replaced by the possibility of another conference and location for which I could write another proposal abstract.
I found a blog post from a very successful abstract writer, Catherine Baker, who gives her 5 steps for successfully pitching your research for almost any conference you choose. The 5 steps and explanations are linked below. Hopefully her advice can help us all write better abstracts and get accepted to present at the conferences we really want to attend.
