NOTE (Security certificate for our submission web site): In attempting to access our new submission web site using Internet Explorer as your browser, you may be warned about a "security certificate" problem. When that happens, one normally sees a screen giving you a few options and one of the options is "Continue to this web site". Selecting this option will get you there and should bypass the problem. Please note that this is only a temporary issue.
