I wrote a paper that I wish to propose to a certain CS conference. Two of the deadlines mentioned on the Important Dates page on the conference's website are: Abstract submission and Paper submission.
My paper already has an abstract section.
I know what a paper is supposed to look like, but what is an abstract, as a separate entity, supposed to look like? Do I simply copy the abstract from my paper? Is it supposed to be submitted as a pdf document? Do I need to add a title? My name?
Could someone please post a link to an example abstract document that is adequate to be submitted to an abstract submission deadline for a conference?
