You can always use additional braces to make BibTeX leave things

author = {{Organising Committee and Collaborators, Falun Meeting}},
title = {...}
journal = {...}

will ensure that the author is taken as "Organising Committee ... "
and it will be sorted accordingly.

A fairly detailed description of how to enter unusual items into a
BibTeX database can be found in "The LaTeX Companion", by Goosens,
Mittlebach and Samarin.
