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.

Motivated by phenomenology we discuss extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics, in detail, grand unified theories (GUTs) and supersymmetry (SUSY). It is shown that these extensions might point towards extra-dimensions and, hence, towards string theory. Therefore, we analyze compactifications of the heterotic string, especially on six-dimensional orbifolds. A complete classification of orbifolds that preserve SUSY in four dimensions is given and we present some of their properties, like the mechanism of orbifold-GUT-breaking, the origin of discrete symmetries (including R-symmetries) and discrete anomalies. These symmetries might be of phenomenological interest as they can be used to address the problem of proton decay, the mu-problem, the flavour puzzle and the QCD axion.
