Dear Thiagji, Vgm

Well firstly, conference has a far broader spectrum of meaning . It can refer to the meeting of representatives of an organization; in politics the meeting of two legislative committees; in Christianity it is the area organization of churches, like a regional or national body to which a number of local churches belong; and in sport an association or league of sports teams that compete with each other. So you can see that none of the others have those specific meanings.

"Conference" also refers to meeting for lectures of discussion, whereas a seminar is a meeting on a specific subject, or a meeting of university or college students for study or discussion with an academic supervisor. Conference has no such specific meaning.

A seminar can also mean a specialized educational class.
