Post your tips about finding calls for papers, presenting, or any aspect of the conference process!

Finding a call for papers:

Genre of an abstract:

An abstract should be an independent work, serving as a substitute for you paper. It will summarize your thesis and supporting points, using key words, phrases, readings (content and methodology) you will conduct, and/or theorists from the paper.

The length and content will depend on the specific CFP you’re responding to. You’ll also want to target the specific CFP, conference, or conference topic to which you’re submitting (put keywords, phrases, etc. from the call or conference topic into your abstract). Therefore, while writing general abstracts of your papers are good for practice, you will probably need to revise them for each submission.
