These verbs (GO,WENT,GONE and etc)depend on tenses or duration of the usage of that particticular verb in specific time.
Example:In the following sentence
Kim will GO to the conference.
Kim WENT to the conference.
Kim have GONE to the conference.
same as that there many many verbs we need to be femiliar with them because if we use them in the wrong place for example if we use the future tense in past tense or others then the whole sentence will go wrong and it does make sence.
I hope now it's clear for you:)
