Tips for Preparing a DRC Abstract
The submitted abstract will be used by the Technical Program Committee as the sole basis for acceptance of the paper for presentation. Thus, the abstract should clearly communicate the new and significant results that have been obtained. In addition, accepted abstracts will be reproduced exactly as submitted, including submission for inclusion in IEEE Xplore, if authors choose this publication option. (See important publishing note above.) Therefore, submitted abstracts should read like a short paper and be suitable for publication. Time and effort spent constructing a clear, concise, and well-written abstract will maximize the chances of paper acceptance. New and significant work is a prerequisite for paper acceptance; previously published results will be rejected automatically.
Abstracts must clearly state:
- The objective of the work
- The results and accomplishments and their significance
- The advancement over previous work
In addition, the figures should be very clear and well labeled. Abstracts with poor figures will be rejected.
Example abstracts from past DRCs can be downloaded below (PDF format). Note that these do not necessarily follow the current abstract template but do model the type of content needed for a good DRC abstract. While unlikely, unusual abstract preparation questions should be forwarded to the Technical Program Chair.
