How do you cite a conference presentation on your resume?

    I have been researching with a professor for the past semester and he recently told me that I will be listed as third author on a conference presentation he will be making this summer.

    I'd like to cite this on my resume, but I do not know how to cite it correctly, if there even is a correct way. Should it be separate from publications (he also plans on publishing the work in a journal eventually)? Should it be included with publications, but cited as a conference presentation? How do most people usually cite these things?

    You cite the abstract the way you would cite a published article, except instead of the name of a journal you list the conference title and location, and the abstract number instead of a page number (unless there's a published abstract book, in which case use the format the abstract book says is the correct citation).
