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.

The ALICE experiment, optimised to study heavy-ion collisions at the CERN LHC, took successfully its first data on Nov 23 2009 recording some 300 eventsfrom the first pp colli-ding beams at injection energy.
The analysis of those very first events led to the first publication of the LHC era with the measurement on charged particle pseudorapidity density in pp at 900 GeV centre of mass energy.
A total of about 350 000 collisions were recorded and the data are currently being analysed.
In addition to measurements for comparison to the heavy-ion results, several other physics topics including baryon/antibaryon asymmetry, high-pt physics, understanding the underlying event, are also be addressed in the ALICE pp physics program.
The current status of the experiment and its physics program will be presented with emphasis on the analysis of the first data.
