A poster for the project I worked on was accepted at a conference. I am listed as a coauthor on the poster. I did not attend the conference, present the poster or actually help in making the poster as I had already left the lab/school when the abstract was submitted. Since I am officially listed on the submission I want to include this on my CV. I I think I should not write this under "Conference Presentations" as I did not present the work myself. How should I list this in my CV?

    Personally, I list "conference presentations" on my CV and distinguish "as a speaker" and "as a contributer". Additionally, I distinguish "poster presentations" and "talks". – FuzzyLeapfrog Feb 26 '17 at 8:58

First, I would distinguish between paper presentations and poster presentations in your CV in general, if you don't do this already.

I suggest you list it as you normally would under "Poster Presentations". As long as you make sure that the other coauthors are listed appropriately, there is no reason why this would be an issue.

Unless you are the first author (which I assume you aren't), most people would probably assume that you're not the presenter, though this isn't too crucial. If you really want, you can specify who was the presenting author, but I think this is probably unnecessary in this case.
