Now that the final FPA call for papers has officially ended, I thought I would post links to some other conferences with open calls for papers. Below I have included links to conferences and links to lists of conferences. On a side note, I found a website with some pretty funny philosophy tee-shirts.
The University of Louisville is hosting an undergraduate philosophy conference, The Steven Humphrey Student Philosophy Colloquium, on Friday, November 14, 2008. The call for papers is open until October 20th. Submissions should be sent to Dr. Robert Kimball (email@example.com) Also, it is noted on the conference website that scholarships are available for travel.
The American Comparative Literture Association has database of upcoming conferences on everything from philosophy in Eastern Europe to Philosophy as Literature. You will have to go to the website to check out a complete list of all of the different conferences. I think this is a great resource for all those who are studying both English and Philosophy.
The South Carolina Society for Philosophy is hosting a conference from February 27-28th, 2009. They have an open call for papers until January 4th, and they also are offering essay prizes. Submissions can be sent to Dr. Dennis Earl (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please see the website for submission guidelines.
The Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy has another large list of upcoming conferences. Topics range from Anarchism to Environmental Philosophy, and of course lots of phenomenology conferences. Again, please visit the website for more detailed information.
Here is a list of tons of conferences worldwide.
The West Chester University website has information on three upcoming student philosophy conferences. The first one is: Aristotle, Ethics, and Science: Conference and Graduate Student Workshop. This one lasts from October 4th-5th. Visit the website for more information or contact Andrew Payne (email@example.com ) Keynote Speakers include:

The University of Delaware will be hosting an undergraduate philosophy conference, Sunday March 1, 2009 (according to this link, but I didn’t see any information on the school’s web page). There is still an open call for papers for this conference until December 15th, 2008. Submissions can be sent to David Silver (firstname.lastname@example.org ) but, check this website for more information on submissions.
