Safer to keep the number 3 as just part of the title. Even though the
conference is a series, the conference publications might not always
follow the same pattern in their titles and might therefore lack a
consistent collective title.
RDA makes clear that it is fine to leave an edition number as part of
title, e.g. MGMT3, and this might be a similar case.

I don't think it's a multipart work, because presumably there'll be (or
the intention is that there'll be) further conferences - there's no
defined end point.
I think I decided that by transcribing the title and then having a
series/numbering statement as well, I'd covered all bases. Hadn't
thought to have a 246 as well though!

Here is my record 7, with a couple of queries noted on it: one is to do
with the conference name which is not authorised for use in RDA records
at the moment (but think we can safely ignore that as this is just an
exercise). The other is a question about what to do with the 3 in the
title: is it part numbering, does it mean this is essentially a series
or a multivol work? I've just gone for the easier option and considered
it part of the title proper.
