These step-by-step instructions will take you through the process of publishing your poster on QUBES. More information is available in this Knowledge Base article on Publishing a Resource.

Please publish your poster before Monday, June 27, 2022.

If you have difficulties and need to troubleshoot, we will have an office hours session just before the conference starts from 7:30-8:00 a.m. Mountain time. Meet in the Student Library (in-person) or use the conference zoom link (virtual)
