From Omentielva’s website:

We use Omentielva, followed by the appropriate Quenya ordinal, as the short name for each International Conference on J.R.R. Tolkien’s Invented Languages, part of a series of biennial conferences at changing locations.

Omentie was the Quenya word Tolkien used for ‘meeting’ in the familiar Elen síla lúmenn’ omentielvo!  in The Fellowship of the Ring. Later he refined its meaning to ‘meeting between two parties’. Here it can in this sense refer to, say, the meeting between those who arrange and those who join. Or each participant may view himself as one party vis-à-vis the rest of the conference. In any case, at this conference scholars from many countries will meet, every two years, and discuss for several days.
