I'm sure Adam is right about establishing the individual instances
according to their respective usages.
I'd look for an opportunity to wedge a hint about the numbering
into a note on the heading for the collective name.
A 678, if that's the right field number.

I think you must establish each heading based on the usage of the
individual conference, and it if it doesn't use numbering, then I wouldn't
