Its been about a year, that i started using joomla. i.e building some plugins, module and components. Now i want to extend my level of knowledge in inside working mechanism of joomla system.

I know events defined in plugin are called after triggering, but on a first hand how every plugin register itself to joomla's core eventdispatcher.

Can anyone clear my confusion?

They do not register itself. This is done by JPluginHelper::importPlugin() method. See this article for reference. Hope it will make your confusion clear ;)
