I am writing an abstract for a conference, to present a software project. I want to say I will go through all aspects of the project and would like to have better wording instead of "Going through" in the following sentence:

"_________ [Going through] all aspects of the project, ..."

I have the feeling it's poor English for an abstract (I am not a native English speaker so I may be wrong on this...).

I am looking for something maybe more figurative (?) that would give a better idea of describing all aspects of the project in the presentation.

    How about that you will "review" all aspects of the project?

  • Yeah, there are other terms but "review" is by far the most idiomatic for that context.

  • Some other verbs with different shades of meaning may be suitable, such as: "consider" "discuss" "examine" "evaluate" "have regard for"

I suggest the word Delineate.

Merriam Webster - Delineate

  • To describe, portray, or set forth with accuracy or in detail.

I will delineate all aspects of the project.

Our objectives need to be precisely delineated. We should delineate the steps to be taken by the government

I have used this word a couple of times in my abstract for journal publications. This is a formal word and I think it sounds great.

Other more obvious words that might work are Outline, Present, Discuss, and Describe.
