I wish that everybody would agree, at least in my field, that a conference abstract is some particular number of words. I've just seem something nice to apply to. They want 750 words. I already have 500, 1500, and 2000 word versions.
@twsh those are...so long. I have only written max 250 words.
@Cyborgneticz I'm not sure how I feel about the length. I think longer abstracts are better for assessing the paper, but they are more effort to read and write. Maybe 500 is good.
