The intended outcome of a good abstract is to create a compelling presentation that will inspire and engage through the dissemination of innovative, applicable ideas that meet a real need. AONL 2023 offers several sessions formats to enhance the learning, sharing and networking experience for conference participants.
Prior to developing an abstract, it is important to review the submission requirements, character limits within each section and AONL 2023 content priorities.
Tip: Organize, outline and write the abstract in a Word document before entering the content to the online submission. This will save time, ensure the word limits are met, avoid spelling errors and avoid browser time-out issues. After the abstract is written, please copy/paste the information into the submission form.
