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.

Nuclear fusion powers the Sun and stars, and can potentially supply almost limitless energy on Earth. The Joint European Torus (JET) experiment near Oxford, England, can heat isotopes of hydrogen to the extreme temperatures required for them to fuse into helium. JET holds the world record for fusion energy production. A common question is "if you put the Sun in a box, how do you stop the sides from melting?". Materials often become a focus of attention as a technology approaches practical use, and this is exactly what is happening in fusion research. ITER, which is currently under construction, is twice the size of JET and is expected to produce 500 MW of fusion power. For ITER, a combination of tungsten and beryllium plasma-facing materials is chosen, and for the past year a similar configuration has been tested with JET's ITER-like Wall. Many valuable lessons have been learned on issues critical to ITER. These range from limiting the build-up of radioactive tritium (an isotope of hydrogen used as fuel) to avoiding melting. The results also show that the problem of achieving the necessary conditions for a high fusion reaction rate in the plasma centre cannot be separated from the problem of choosing the wall materials. This talk will cover the fusion background to JET's ITER-like Wall, its installation by remote handling robots, and a summary of key results.
