Here is a list of some upcoming conferences, most of which are still welcoming your submissions. Some of this information is from the last conference update, but I just want to make sure that the word gets out and that you all have a change to represent your respective schools! Also, check out the previous list of conferences if these are not enough.
The Midsouth Philosophy Conferencewill be on February 22nd-23rd at the University of Memphis. Undergraduates are welcome to submit, as well as others. Papers for this conference should not exceed 3,000 words and will be accepted until January 1st. It is important for you to pay close attention to the required submission format because it appears that those who do not comply will not be considered.
