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.

Diffuse interstellar gas - new results from the PRISMAS Herschel Key Programme
(Chalmers University of Technology)
The study of diffuse and translucent interstellar clouds has taken a major leap forward with the launch of the Herschel Space Observatory. The environment in these clouds is very harsh and existing species are therefore small molecules, mostly light hydrides. Most species are, however, very difficult to observe since they have their ground state transitions at wavelengths which normally are not accessible using ground-based facilities. With Herschel, new opportunities have opened for spectrally resolved observations of key species with high sensitivity. The very successful PRISMAS (PRobing InterStellar Molecules with Absorption line Studies) Herschel Guaranteed Time Key Project is a comprehensive spectroscopic study of key molecular line carriers, probing previously unaccessible interstellar hydrides and carbon chains in diffuse and translucent interstellar clouds. The PRISMAS observations use eight compact far-infrared submm-wave sources in star-forming regions as background continuum for absorption measurements of ground-state transitions in the diffuse line-of-sight clouds. By sampling different regions through several galactic arms along very long sight-lines (10 kpc) across the Galaxy, PRISMAS has already begun to have a profound impact on our understanding of the diffuse and translucent molecular gas in the Galaxy.
