Increase the chances that your abstract will be selected for an oral presentation

The Program Committee reads all the abstracts that want to be considered for an oral presentation, but all too often, it is difficult to determine the intended presentation content based on the abstract. Thus, a well written abstract is the best way to increase the chances of being selected.  The Program Committee teamed up with the editor of Plant Direct to identify an example of an informative abstract and explain its parts. Thanks also the authors for letting us use their abstract!  While following the abstract structure/content  in this abstract example is optional, it is highly recommended by the Program Committee.
