Academic conferences fall into three categories: the themed conference organized around a particular topic; the general conference with a wider focus, with sessions on a wide variety of topics. These conferences are often organized by regional, national, or international learned societies, and held annually or on some other regular basis; the professional conference, large conferences not limited to academics, but with academically-related issues.

Conferences are usually organized either by a scientific society or by a group of researchers with a common interest. Larger meetings may be handled on behalf of the scientific society by a Professional Conference Organizer.
