Tips for Writing a Presentation Summary
Information provided in this form is the only content the review committee will evaluate. Like the conference audience, not all members of the committee will be experts in your subject area. Clearly identifying the context and relevance of your presentation is vital to a successful proposal!
Create a brief, catchy title to generate interest in your presentation.
Keep summary concise (3-5 sentences) and packed with essential information.
Be sure to answer the following questions in the summary:
- What is the problem you are trying to solve or context for your work?
- How does your program/research/expertise address the problem?
- What will the audience be able to take back to their Centers from your presentation?
- If applicable, highlight any interactive components of your presentation and clearly state actions expected from audience.
Define all acronyms and do not assume the reader has any specialized knowledge on your subject.
