Definition of a congress

Congress: Regular coming together of individuals belonging to a single professional, cultural, religious or other group (IAPCO Meeting Industry Terminology)

Conference: Participatory meeting designed for discussion, fact-finding, problem solving and consultation (IAPCO Meeting Industry Terminology)

The terms congress and conference can be considered to be synonyms, and their use is usually determined by each organisation's or industry's established practice. A congress is usually a large event, while a conference is normally smaller in scale.
