MWSUG 2016 Presenter Resources

This is a collection of tools to assist authors in the creation and formatting of their MWSUG 2016 papers, presentations, and/or e-posters. If you have any questions not covered in these resources, please contact the Academic Chair, Richann Watson, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

When you are ready to upload your final paper, copyright grant form, presentation slides or e-poster, please login to the MWSUG Paper Submission System, select your submission, and choose the link for "Final Submission". You will be presented with a form with separate places to upload the paper/e-poster, the presentation, and the copyright grant form. You don't have to upload them all at the same time, and you can revise each as often as you like before the submission deadline. New submissions will simply overwrite previous submissions.
