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.

Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG) is a candidate for a theory that consistently
combines the principles of General Relativity and Quantum Theory. A crucial
property of LQG that distinguishes it from other approaches is
the manifest implementation of a central principle of Einstein's theory:
Background independence. By this is meant that in General Relativity there
is no a priori distinguished background geometry, rather geometry and matter
are dynamical and evolve in tandem as described by Einstein's equations. In
this talk we give an introduction to the elements of LQG and show that LQG
naturally emerges when combining background independence with standard
