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 Gamma ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST) project began in 1992, a year after the launch of EGRET onboard the CGRO spacecraft. Capitalizing on the advances in particle detector technology, the GLAST project developed an observatory, which would extend the discovery space of EGRET by over an order of magnitude. After its launch in 2008, GLAST was renamed Fermi-LAT and has performed an all-sky survey of the gamma ray sky ever since. This talk will present details of how the instrument was designed and how the design choices contributed to the success of this mission. Highlights from the first 6 years of the Fermi-LAT mission will be presented.
