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.

Both the EU Monte Carlo Network MCNet and the Terascale Alliance "Physics at the Terascale" have a long tradition of organising schools on HEP Monte Carlo event generators.
This year, the two efforts are merged, and the common 2013 Monte Carlo school will be held from 5-9 August at the Maria Spring hostel / conference site close to Göttingen, Germany.
The School will provide a five-day course on the physics and techniques used in modern Monte Carlo event generators via a series of lectures and practical sessions. The school is aimed at advanced doctoral students and young postdocs. To prepare for the tutorials at the School, participants bringing their own laptops must download and install VirtualBox following the instructions given on this site. A virtual machine with the software for tutorials will be distributed at the School or even beforehand.
The funds from MCNet and the Terascale Alliance will cover the local costs of all participants; only the travel costs (flight, train, etc.) have to be covered by the participants themselves or by their institutes.
