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 formation of molecules in cold astrophysical environments is investigated in trap experiments. Higher order mulitpole traps are ideal instruments to simulate the cold conditions in space and the laboratory. For example protonated hydrogen, H3+, is a key molecular ion. Its role for the chemistry in cold astrophysical environments will be explained. One important mechanism of molecule formation discussed is radiative association. Here an ion collides with a neutral molecule and stabilzes by emission of a photon.This event is rare, yet under the conditions in space it is the only way to form many molecules. In cold environments deuterated molecules are often found enhanced by several orders of magnitude over their hydrogenated counterpart. This deuterium fractionation is driven by small differences in zero point energies of the corresponding molecules but many mystries are still unraveled. Understanding such processes will ultimately teach us about the coldest places in the world and link to the formation of stars and planets in space.
