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.

Studying topological materials using Terahertz radiation
(Molecuar Physics Division)
Topological insulators are an emerging class of quantum materials. These materials show experimental properties similar to graphene, e.g. a low-energy electronic structure with Dirac fermion excitations, but in contrast to graphene with strong spin-orbit coupling. As a consequence topological (crystalline) insulators exhibit an inverted insulating bulk band structure and conducting (gapless), symmetry-protected surface states with helical spin texture.
The subject matter of this talk is how Terahertz radiation can be used to study topological materials, such as e.g. topological (crystalline) insulators. In this context Terahertz radiation can be an interesting probe because characteristic energies of many elementary solid-state excitations are located in the Terahertz region (0.24-24 THz, 1-100 meV) of the electromagnetic spectrum.
