If you are looking at a way to indicate to a prospective employer of your
contribution to a conference, you could always write a few lines in your
resume and provide a URL as reference and even cite the conference
co-ordinates as references in your resume. I think that is good enough.
Btw, I am not convinced that any employer gives a lot of thought to
your contribution to conferences et cetera unless they are looking at
a position which is related to organizing and technology evangelism.
Most of the time they are only interested in whether you have the
skills to get the job done, which they ascertain during their interview
process anyway. Believe me, I myself have numerous conference
speaking credits in my resume in the "Others" section, but so far
I have never seen an interviewer or HR, giving them nothing but
a sideways glance :)
