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.

Collision Induced Dissociation in Biomolecule Cations
We have recently measured absolute cross sections for knockout of single carbon atoms in collisions between PAH ions and noble gases   . The knockout process in PAH molecules can result in highly reactive fragments, which are not formed in statistical fragmentation . These fragments may be key intermediate steps in the formation of larger molecules in the interstellar medium. The knockout mechanism is expected to be important for any molecular system with a center-of-mass collision energy around 100 eV and down to the threshold energy for this process. PAHs are ideal for studying these processes as they have a planar rigid structure and the single carbon loss is strongly suppressed when the fragmentation is statistical   . Biomolecules on the other hand are typically non-planar and more fragile systems, and it is more complicated to distinguish non-statistical fragmentation processes from statistical ones.
In this work, we have studied collisions between biomolecular ions and noble gas atoms. The experiments were carried out with the aid of a single pass collision setup, which is a part of the DESIREE facility   at Stockholm University. We will present preliminary results on first Collision Inducted Dissociation experiments with biomolecules (Adenosine 5’-monophosphate, Adenine and Adenosine) at a center-of-mass energies of about 100 eV. We will also present early results from an experiment on porphine ions in the same energy range.
