thanks for responding so quickly. My brief sketch of a conference list is of course far from complete, of course. I was hoping that such summary information is already being kept at a central point. I am asking this as my employer, the German National Library for Science and Technology, is actively collecting conference videos from FOSS4G conferences on global/regional/national levels. As most videos are currently being posted first on YouTube/Vimeo, some kind of central conference register would be helpful to contact possible producers of related video material.
>From the library's perspective, this continuously growing amount of OSGeo/FOSS4G video material is a relevant source of scientific-technical information, to provide access to the state of the art about the FOSS software projects, like PostGIS.
FWIW, here's a presentation about what has been achieved so far (FOSS4G-Europe 2015):
