In order to enable an iCal export link, your account needs to have an API key created. This key enables other applications to access data from within Indico even when you are neither using nor logged into the Indico system yourself with the link provided. Once created, you can manage your key at any time by going to 'My Profile' and looking under the tab entitled 'HTTP API'. Further information about HTTP API keys can be found in the Indico documentation.
Additionally to having an API key associated with your account, exporting private event information requires the usage of a persistent signature. This enables API URLs which do not expire after a few minutes so while the setting is active, anyone in possession of the link provided can access the information. Due to this, it is extremely important that you keep these links private and for your use only. If you think someone else may have acquired access to a link using this key in the future, you must immediately create a new key pair on the 'My Profile' page under the 'HTTP API' and update the iCalendar links afterwards.

Understanding the First Results from the LHC Run II

The upcoming LHC runs are an unparalleled opportunity for particle physics. The discovery of the Higgs boson almost 50 years after its theoretical prediction has finally established the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking. It has revealed the final missing puzzle piece of the Standard Model and established quantum field theory as the mathematical description of fundamental interactions. Nevertheless, much about the Standard Model remains mysterious. While it describes experiments with uncanny precision, it cannot serve as a complete description. It fails to describe neutrino masses, dark matter, the matter-anti-matter asymmetry of the Universe, the approximate gauge coupling unification, and inflation. In addition, many of its structural features such as the different gauge symmetries, the matter content, its patterns of masses and mixings, and the absence of strong CP-violation hint at underlying structures at higher energies. There are many compelling visions for how these mysteries might be linked to new structure at the TeV scale, within reach of the upgraded LHC.
