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.

Jamming and Glassy Behavior in Granular and Soft Matter Systems
Oskar Klein auditorium ()

Granular and soft-matter systems, such as foams, colloids and emulsions, undergo a "jamming transition" from a liquid-like state to a rigid but disordered solid state as one varies system parameters. In athermal systems at low densities, jamming may occur via compression as one increases the packing fraction of the particles. At higher densities, jamming may occur when the applied shear stress decreases below a critical yield stress. At finite temperatures, jamming may occur as one lowers the temperature and freezes into a glassy state. A "jamming phase diagram" has been proposed as a means to unify these three different routes to jamming. Using numerical simulations of a simple model system of frictionless disks in two dimensions, we review the jamming behavior with respect to compression, shearing, and varying temperature. We find that while compression can give a range of jamming packing fractions depending on the initial state, shear driven jamming defines a unique packing fraction where the yield stress vanishes; critical scaling applies at this shear driven jamming transition. Adding finite temperature to our model we use dimensional analysis and numerical simulations to argue that, contrary to the jamming phase diagram conjecture, athermal jamming and the equilibrium glass transition appear to be distinctly different physical phenomena.
