Hints for a Successful Abstract

Short Talks - The ICPP2018 Program Committee will review all abstracts submitted for short talks and will choose the presentations based mainly on scientific quality. The committee will also consider other factors, such as topic, so each session has a cohesive focus and to ensure ICPP has a broad international representation of plant pathology. Priority for inclusion in Short Talk sessions will be given to students, postdocs, and early career professionals.

Short Talks and Posters - Here is a checklist to help abstract writers present their work clearly for consideration.

  • The title and abstract has been thoroughly checked to eliminate spelling and grammar errors.
  • All authors listed have contributed to the work being presented.
  • All authors listed have read and approved of the final version of the abstract.
  • The abstract has been reviewed by at least two colleagues who are not authors on this abstract.
  • The abstract title does not include abbreviations.
  • If a scientific binomial is used in the title, both the genus and species names are fully written. (for example, Phytophthora infestans, not P. infestans)
Abstract text describes the following:
  • Research significance
  • Hypothesis tested or research objective
  • Methods used
  • Experimental results, with as much quantitative specificity as possible
  • Conclusions of the work presented
