It is mandatory to document the search process for each database. This includes all search terms used, their variations, the date when the searches were carried out, filters (such as type of subject, age, language), number of results from each search and date, number of duplicate results, and final number of results.
There are a number of sources for conference/meeting abstracts.
Many, but not all, literature databases also index these and allow you to include or exclude them from your search.
Additionally, most associations and societies provide access to their conference proceedings on their websites and/or in their primary journal, usually as a supplement issue. Ones relevant to your topic can be searched directly.
