I don't think you're going to be able to change the super-title
"International Mathematica User Conference 2008" that appears at the
very top of the page in those conference slide show notebooks: the 
conference title is embedded directly in the graphic.

It's possible that by opening one of those conference presentation

SlideShow option for the Screen Environment). I'm particularly fond of 
David Park's "ParkStyle6.nb", which you can find at:
