Is this spam just messing with me?

Today's study in Weird Spam starts off with,
It is with pleasure that we invite you to take part in the 2017 world conference on Global Security, Save The Life And Terrorism In The World. This conference Scheduled to take place from [February 15th to 19th, United States and Senegal from February 22nd to 26th 2017].
It's obvious phishing spam, and was properly marked as such in Gmail.

The punchline? This conference is organized by the "World Thoracic Society".  That word, I do not think it means what you think it means.

Really, I kind of suspect they chose an important-sounding word at random.  Am I missing a definition that would make this make sense?
