After searching on the web found that 'conference' is an alias to 'inproceedings', added for compatibility with other software. Added 'conference' to Text::BibTeX. It should work on next release (hope to make it soon). Sorry for the delay on solving this question, but this module maintainer was changed. Cheers.
