What constitutes a conference?

For an activity to be considered a conference, it must meet all four components listed below:

  1. official registration (not necessarily with a cost)
  2. networking opportunities between professionals and students
  3. learning/educational component (could including presenting)
  4. connection to students' professional pathways/goals
