It varies by jurisdiction.

In some places, you schedule your case conference when the original application is filed. Otherwise, you get the case conference date at your first appearance before the registrar.

If it does not happen for some reason then then either party can set a case conference by going to court to request it.

If neither party does it, cases receive notice of approaching dismissal (NAD) 1 year after they were originally filed. At that time, the next date for the case must be set or else it will be administratively dismissed.

Your trial is scheduled after the settlement conference. The settlement conference takes places after the case conference and any interim motions. If you ignore your case you will not be spontaneously given a trial date after a year; you will simply have to wait that much longer until trial.
