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.

Münchner Physik Kolloquium: „Place Your Bets: Last Chance to be Wrong About What Might be Discovered at the LHC“
(Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, Waterloo, Ontario, and Dept. of Physics & Astronomy, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada)
Hörsaal E7 (Fakultät für Physik der LMU, München)
Fakultät für Physik der LMU, München
The turn-on of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been touted as likely to fundamentally change our picture of how nature works on the smallest of distances we can probe. This talk will review the case for why failure to discover something is believed not to be an option, and outline the three main categories of new physics that have been identified as the possible contenders for the new physics to be found. To establish my personal credibility, if time permits I will explain why I personally think the LHC will discover extra dimensions and string theory, and yet will not produce a black hole that will eat the earth.
