What tools make it easy to maintain (or avoid!) the N versions of your CV?

When writing a CV (applying for an academic position, workshop or a scholarship), it's important to include one's list of publications, conference talks and posters, awards, etc.

Moreover, the list need to be tailored to the respective scope (and with the appropriate fine-graining).

The question is, is there a specific workflow (or software) to keep tracks of one's academic records, so that later it's easy to cherry-pick the relevant stuff?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Your question seems to be very close to that linked by Zenon, could you please explain how is it different? – user102 Nov 25 '12 at 11:13
@CharlesMorisset I somehow missed that question, and mine should be closed (you are right, it's too similar). – Piotr Migdal Nov 25 '12 at 11:21

On my website I keep a list of my academic achievements. This only includes journal publications, official reports, and conference proceedings though. When I need to make a list of my most relevant publications, I take a look at that page. A nice way to tracking your papers and such is to create a Google Scholar Citations page. This automatically looks for your publications and keeps record of the number of citations you receive.

Google Scholar and Microsoft Academic Research (also DBLP for computer science) collect a decent amount of one's publications (in particular Google Scholar).
If you are writing your CV in Latex/LyX, I would suggest finding/creating BIBTEX entries for your papers then import the .bib file into your CV.
