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.

The agricultural land area on earth, estimated to be about 5 thousand million hectares, is affected by degradation at a rate of about 5 to 7 million hectares per year, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (UN). Three quarters of these degraded lands are located in developing countries. Erosion is the most common type of soil degradation, accounting for 84% of the affected area.
The FAO and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA, Vienna), celebrated recently the 2015 International Year of Soils (IYS 2015) declared by the 68th UN General Assembly (A/RES/68/232). The major specific objectives of the IYS 2015, as indicated by the FAO/IAEA, are to raise full awareness among civil society and decision makers about the profound importance of soil for human life, and educate the public about the crucial role soil plays in food security, climate change adaptation and mitigation, essential ecosystem services, poverty alleviation and sustainable development.
The talk will address the investigation of soil sedimentation and erosion by Nuclear Techniques using Fallout Radionuclides (FRNs), and in particular, the investigations in this field carried out at the University USTHB of Algiers and its recent cooperation with the University of Valencia (Departamento de Física Atómica Molecular y Nuclear and IFIC-Laboratory of Environmental Radioactivity) funded by Catedra Unesco and Severo Ochoa grants.
