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 direct Dissociative Recombination (DR) process of H2O+ is studied. DR is a process whereby a low energy electron collides with a molecular ion to form a highly excited neutral state. Since it is an unstable state, it can then dissociate to neutral fragments.
Autoionization is also possible while the potential energy surface of the resonant excited state has not crossed the ion ground state surface. However, once the surface have crossed, autoionization is no longer possible, and the molecule continues to dissociate. This is the direct DR mechanism. In the study of the direct DR process, potential energy surfaces and autoionization widths of resonant states are computed using structure and electronic scattering calculations. A quasidibatization is performed by removing electronic states that have a Rydberg configuration. In a 1D model only the breakup of one OH bond is included and the nuclear dynamics is studied quantum mechanically using the Crank-
Nicholson method. In a 2D study, both radial coordinates are included, while the angle between the two bonds is frozen. The wavepackets are propagated using the MCTDH program. The DR cross section is reported for the energy range 0-10 eV.
