  1. PCS is using the wrong hostname in the certificate (main.precisionconference.com vs. confs.precisionconference.com), so submissions of final PDFs in modern browsers fail with a security warning. If this is ignored, submission works, but is not marked as complete (i.e., I’ve submitted all aspects of a paper, but the system still says I need to add the submission document) unless the process is repeated and the paper is uploaded a second time. Please fix this.
