— Conference abstracts and posters —

Almost everyone presenting at a conference must prepare an abstract or poster

Abstracts are usually compiled in a booklet, the 'conference proceedings,' that is (usually) given to attendees at the start of a conference. This is typically when you read what others are presenting at the conference. Unfortunately it is also when you first notice an embarrassing error, or worse still, multiple errors, in your own abstract

Mistakes never look good. In the professional environment, where you are marketing something (yourself, a team, a product, or an organization), mistakes like this reflect poorly on everyone involved

Words written in haste often contain errors

You wouldn't be the first person to leave the writing of their abstract, presentation or poster to the very last minute. You also wouldn't be the first person to notice errors in what you'd written only when printed in a conference proceedings, on a poster, or projected onto a big screen. We've all done it, and each time we've done so we've said "never again." Until the next time, that is

Avoid disappointment. Send us your poster or presentation to proof
