"Academic conferences" already exist though

in the form of research consortiums and other academic affiliations. For example The Department of Dairy Science competes in several different competitions (i.e. Eastern States Exposition and Pennsylvania All American Dairy Show) during the 2017-2018 academic year. How is either competition any different than an athletic competition? I suspect VT students also compete in other academic based competitions (i.e. music, engineering, theater, etc.) How are those different than athletic competitions? I suspect with further research you would find the schools competing in these various academic competitions could be broken down into smaller groups. Aren't these smaller groups the same as a conference even if "conference" is not included in the group's name?
