Instruction about abstracts of student talks
It is not possible to fit a lot into 10..15 lines, but an abstract is an important summarizing piece of text. Therefore, writing a good abstract is difficult and requires considerable care.
The abstract must set the background for the work done, state the specific goals, the result and how it was achieved. It must also make it clear how novel the result is and how it relates to other work in the area.
It is fine to present work in progress in our student session, but there should be some completed part. The abstract should indicate the level of completion of the work.
If the material of the talk has been published or submitted to publication, that should be remarked too.
If the speaker has coauthors, they should be credited.
For the EWSCS student session we solicit talks on topics of theoretical computer science, broadly understood.
