Conferences was actually one of the use cases that led to
Event<http://schema.org/Event>having the subEvent and superEvent
properties -- so you could have an event
for the conference overall that contains other events for the individual
sessions/tracks/etc.

Based on the desired features you list, it sounds like the biggest missing
thing is the ability to link an Event to it's related documentation (slides,
papers, etc.).  There's "offers" for things like the DVD of the concert, but
that seems inappropriate if the resource is not actually for sale.
