An abstract is a very succinct overview of what you tried to do, why you tried it, and what you actually accomplished. It is in a way your whole paper/poster, writ tiny. It is especially important to give a clear short statement of your result(s). Someone reading the abstract should be able to make an informed decision about whether it would be worth their while reading the rest of the paper.
