I'm sorry if it may seem a bit stupid but why not 'evrimin konferansa' instead of 'evrim konferansına'

It's a good question. The possessive on the second noun is obligatory. The genitive on the first noun is optional. Observe:

  • Ev anahtarı = The house key
  • Evin anahtarı = The key of the house

  • Okul bahçesi = The school yard

  • Okulun bahçesi = The yard of the school

  • Evrim konferansı = The evolution conference

  • Evrimin konferansı = The conference of the evolution
