The World Scout Conference (WSC) is the general assembly of Scouting and is composed of six delegates from each of the 155 member Scout associations. It is one of three primary components of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM); with the other two being the World Scout Committee and the World Scout Bureau. The basis for recognition and membership in the WSC includes adherence to the aims and principles of world Scouting and independence from political involvement on the part of each member association. The conference meets every three years and is hosted by a member association.

The 38th World Scout Conference will be in Korea from 28 July to 1 August 2008.
