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.

Evolution of scientific instruments - methodology of inventiveness in applications to accelerators and beyond
Evolution of scientific instruments, not only those based on our familiar and conventional accelerator technology, will be discussed in this talk in the framework of the methodology of inventiveness, and will be contrasted with the predictions made in the middle of the previous century.
Armed with the general laws of evolution of scientific instruments, we will attempt to predict how the accelerator-based instruments, which we develop now, will evolve and how they will look like in the middle of our century.
We will in particular focus on discussion of compact X-ray sources, based on plasma acceleration technology. We will touch on the state of the art and some of the advanced ideas, and also discuss several key underlying physics concepts, providing the audience with simple back-of-the-envelope estimations and explanations of their most relevant parameters.
