Are all conferences considered to be peer-reviewed?

But as a rule of thumb: a conference is only considered to be peer-reviewed when the full paper is reviewed, and not an (extended) abstract. Personally, I think that there are great conferences out there, where only an extended abstract is reviewed (e.g., SPIE), but many working in academia do not consider them to be peer-reviewed.

What is the difference between a journal and a conference?

Some fields only review and publish abstracts (e.g., medicine), in some fields conferences are more important than journal publications (e.g., computer science). But as a rule of thumb: a conference is only considered to be peer-reviewed when the full paper is reviewed, and not an (extended) abstract.

How many pages should my paper be for a conference?

But if it is conference, then it should be at least “peer reviewed” one! Some conferences first ask for an abstract. After the selection based on only abstracts they ask for a limited page number paper (like 3-4 pages). After all, you receive no any comments from any Reviewers. At best case, some few typographical comments from the editor.
