There is this congress for which I would like to submit an abstract. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to write a full paper which will be published in a preceeding series and will be indexed in isi. Now I was wondering what exactly is expected from such an abstract? Is it comparable to the abstract of the accompanying paper, with maybe a little bit more introduction to the subject, but still giving the main results. Or is it supposed to be a description of the performed work and as such should describe in general terms the experiments/simulations etc performed without giving the main results? I would much appreciate any help!
