You can't do it directly - reading and parsing a pdf is potentially a nightmare because of all the stuff it might contain and an importer for confluence would be, at best, primitive and clunky, probably having to skip large sections of more complex pdfs.  

It would be better to take a pdf and use a tool dedicated to converting them into word-processing formats, so the humans have a good interface designed to help them migrate the contents, then use Confluence's "import from word"

You can also render out an attached PDF on a wiki page using the PDF macro or the new functionality depending upon your version.

David, which PDF macro are you referring to? Cheers.

The built-in PDF macro that has been there since at least version 4.
