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 oceanic crust makes up the largest potential microbial habitat on Earth. Yet next to nothing is known about the abundance, diversity and ecology of its biosphere. Because of difficulties with sampling, our understanding of the deep biosphere of subseafloor crust is, with a few exceptions, based on a fossil record. Paleontological material is, thus,
central in the exploration of the subseafloor biosphere. The fossil record shows that both prokaryotes and eukaryotes occur at these depths, and morphological diversity suggests symbiotic relationships between the organisms.
Frequent bio-etching into mineral substrates, further suggests that both prokaryotes and eukaryotes are powerful geobiological agents, and their activities might influence global element cycling. The subseafloor biosphere
represents some of the oldest signs of life on Earth, and the fossilization environments present a means to study the evolution of the deep biosphere in deep time. The oceanic crust may have functioned as a protected haven from
hostile surface conditions on the early Earth, and life may have originated and evolved at depths. A similar scenario is possible on other terrestrial planets despite large environmental differences.
