I'm pretty sure you could get into almost any university-run conference by turning up with a blank card on the end of a lanyard. People will just think it's a valid card that's flipped over, because that's just how lanyards behave. Even if the conference prints on both sides of the card, few people will ever notice because they accept that lanyards do whatever they want.

Note that this trick will not get you free food. The people who deal with catering are not academics and are therefore organised.
