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.

Recent years have seen the rise of the notion of a so-called `Swampland’. This term appears when discussing the relation between low-energy effective quantum field theories and their possible embedding into candidate theories of quantum gravity such as string theory. In these three lectures we will explain the meaning of this term, the program it defines, and its limitations. Providing such a guide to the swampland for the adventurous hitchhiker trying to reach the realm of quantum gravity may prove useful, as the so-called `swampland conjectures’ form the landmarks have varying levels of reliability. Understanding the content and limitations of these conjectures is crucial in order to neither under- nor overrate the relevance of the swampland program in its ability to test in particular string theory. The first lecture will provide a bottom-up overview of the subject. The last two lectures will look a bit more closely at the 4 conjectures which may at this time provide the most representative cross-section concerning the interplay of rigorous evidence for a given conjecture versus its phenomenological relevance: The `no-global-symmetries’ conjecture, the `weak gravity conjecture (WGC)’, the `swampland distance conjecture (SDC)’, and the `swampland de Sitter conjecture(s) (SdSC)’.
