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.

High Energy at MPA: Discovery of a superluminal Fe K echo at the Galactic Center: The in-glorious past of Sgr A* betrayed by molecular clouds
(University of Southampton)
Lecture Hall (MPA, Garching)
The study of the 8 years XMM-Newton monitoring of the Galactic Centre Molecular Clouds (MC), within 15 arcmin from SgrA*, will be presented. The emission from the X-ray bright MC shows all the features characteristic of reflection. The long baseline monitoring allows the
characterisation of the temporal evolution of the MC emission, showing a complex pattern of significant variations. In particular, we observe an apparent super-luminal motion of a light front illuminating a Molecular nebula. This might be due to a source outside the MC (such
as SgrA* or a bright and long outburst of a X-ray binary), while it can not be due to low energy cosmic rays or a source located inside the cloud. We also observe a decrease of the X-ray emission from G0.11-0.11, behaviour similar to the one of SgrB2 (for which we measured a fading of the hard X-ray emission in the last 7 years, thanks to the INTEGRAL monitoring of the GC). The line intensities, clouds dimensions, columns densities and positions with respect to SgrA*, are consistent with being produced by the same SgrA* flare. We will infer the past activity of Sgr A* showing that its luminosity has been less than 10^36 erg s-1 since the World War II, that it ended a period of activity (with L~10^39 erg s-1) about 100 years ago and most probably never reached luminosity higher than 10^41 erg s-1 (~2*10^-4 Eddington) since the end of the Roman Empire.
