Has anyone used bibtex to include a list of seminars/presentations given in a CV (kind of like a list of publications). If so, which bibtex entry do you use (@inproceedings, @unpublished...?) and which style file? I intend to use the multibib package to keep this section formatting separate from the list of publications, so I hope to avoid conflicts between the two sections.

I guess that @misc can cover this – egreg Nov 14 '11 at 11:41
On a sidenote, I would recommend to use Biblatex (if possible) and to use the \fullcite macro. I guess, the same can be achieved with bibentry and bibtex. This way the presentations are separate from the publications. I find \begin{itemize} \item \fullcite{citekey1} ... \end{itemize} appropriate for e.g. 'Your five most important publications' or such. – Andy Nov 14 '11 at 11:53

I have done this and recommend

  1. use the @misc entry type for your seminars and presentations.
  2. Use biblatex instead of old-style bibtex in combination with multibib.

The biblatex package does not only provide you built-in support for sectioned/segmented bibliographies, but also more modern styles (including full hyperref/URL/DOI support, for instance) that can more easily be customized.
