What do I need to turn in, to present at the symposium? You will need to complete this form to submit your abstract for the symposium.
What is an abstract? An abstract is a concise but thorough description of a work such as an article, paper, or presentation. It is a narrative (usually a paragraph long) that includes the main points and conclusions of the work; it is not a list, review, or assessment of the work, but is meant to give the reader information on exactly what the larger work contains.
