A 51% attack is where a malicious individual or group controls more than 51% of the hashpower for a proof-of-work coin (a similar scenario can also occur for proof-of-stake, but we focus on proof-of-work below).

Every year there's blockchain conference called Consensus, hosted by CoinDesk, which this year was between the 14th-16th May 2018.
