Limit narrative on background and problem issues. Devote the majority of the proposal text to the following:
- Identify the primary issue that the paper will address and identify the type of new information that it will contribute to the industry.
- Identify the basis for the information in the paper (e.g., research that you have conducted or your personal experience).
- Identify the intended audience (designers, researchers, manufacturers, contractors, and/or building owners), state the new information that will be presented, and describe how it will be useful to said audience.
- Provide a minimum of four learning objectives. The objectives are a brief explanation of the expected learning outcomes of the presentation.
In summary, your abstract should make a concise case for the paper you are proposing. Ultimately, the paper should be technically sound, contain credible and new information, and be something that your primary audience will find useful.
