A conference is essentially organised around a theme and sub -themes. Participants are given opportunities to present research based papers that are open to critical evaluation of attendees.  A seminar is more instructional in nature with a clear cut distinction between the "experts" and the participants who are attending to gain knowledge or specific skills.
