The introduction should give a brief background of the research topic, stating the problem and leading to the aim of the specific research.

A brief description of the methodology and techniques used in the research should be given.

The results and discussion section should give a concise presentation of experimental results obtained and highlight any trends or points of interest. Statements such as "results will be presented" or "will be discussed" are not acceptable and such abstracts will be rejected.

A brief explanation of the significance and implications of the work reported should conclude the abstract.
