Notes:

I'll keep these lists as current as I can, in order of submission deadlines.
Entries without submission dates are usually for organizations with past conferences or journals which reliably repeat; see below for other potentially-useful links.
I gather some of these from philevents.
Here is a good blog, with calls for papers for journals appropriate for undergrads.
Here is a similar OK blog
Some info has been posted here.

Past years: 2016-17; 2015-16; 2014-15; 2013-14; 2012-13; 2011-12
