Change your Curriculum Vitae (CV)

The CVWiki is a feature of BibSonomy which allows you to create or manipulate your own CV page by using either predefined templates or by creating your CV in your personal style. In your CV, you may provide information about yourself and your interests (scientific/private). Other users can view this information.
