Now that your question has been answered ... er ..
how many users are you expecting and how many "abstracts" per user are you expecting?
Perhaps you could just use one abstracts table with a user_id as a foreign key?

A user can submit any number of abstracts .so only the problem.I have a small idea which i am working on i.e When a user registers with the site he is given an ID so when he registers we store all the information in table and then create a table with ID as table name with some default fields .And when the user submits the abstract we keep on adding rows per abstract.So is there any improvement to this

I would have a user table and an 'abstracts' table. The user table contains a unique ID and the users name, and the 'abstracts' table contains the ID of the user and the 'abstract' itself. That way, you don't clog up your mysql database with loads of unnecessary tables.
