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.

When communicating your own research, a blogpost is a quick and easy way to publish your own thoughts and explanations in your own time, and by your own rules. Without an editor giving you deadlines, and without reviewers giving you headaches, a blogpost can be ideal to test your ideas with colleagues, explain your work to friends and family, or share some of your triumphs and frustrations. It may not have an audience of millions, but it has its own link, and will always be there for you to show to anyone.
This workshop will help you structure your thoughts into well-readable text, choose pictures with appropriate licenses, make use of social media in spreading a blogpost, and you will get a chance to publish your own text to show the world—with editing help from your workshop host, and online hosting provided to you.
It is organized as a transferable skills workshop by the PIER Education Platform (PEP) and open to all PhD students or postdoctoral researchers in the fields of physics, mathematics or computer science at DESY or Universität Hamburg.
