I'll keep these lists as current as I can, in order of submission deadlines.
For conferences, entries without submission dates are usually for organizations with past conferences or journals which reliably repeat.
For journals, entries without submission dates often have rolling deadlines
I gather some of these from philevents.

Past years: 2022-23  2021-22; 2020-21; 2019-20; 2018-19; 2017-18; 2016-17; 2015-16; 2014-15; 2013-14; 2012-13; 2011-12
