Conference (présenter ou prononcer une conférence)

The word conference in English refers to a meeting where people gather to exchange ideas and information, hold discussions, present discoveries, etc. It usually has a formal agenda and multiple speakers or sessions, and often runs over multiple days. So when you see présenter/prononcer une conférence in French, lectureor talk is usually the right choice in English. If you see colloque, however, the correct word in English is usually conference and possibly symposium.
