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.

Gravitational Waves: The novel messengers of the Universe

The last century has witnessed tremendous progress thanks to the observation of electromagnetic radiation. Gravitational waves, ripples in the space-time, are now the new messengers that allow us to open a new window to the Cosmos that could revolutionize our understanding of the Universe in which we live. The gravitational waves were detected, directly, for the first time by the LIGO detectors on the 14 September 2015. These waves came to Earth from a catastrophic event in the distant Universe. This confirms an important prediction of the theory of General Relativity of Albert Einstein from 1915 and opens an unprecedented new window in the Cosmos. This talk will explain what are these gravitational waves and how was the first discovery of Advanced LIGO, and our participation in this detection.
