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.

Ultrafast surface chemistry and catalysis probed with optical and x-ray lasers
Heterogeneous catalysis and surface chemistry chemistry form the backbone of the chemical industry and one of the great challenges in chemical physics is to capture the transition states and ultrafast dynamics of catalytic surface reactions. We use a combination of optical and x-ray laser techniques to study dynamics and microscopic mechanisms of surface reactions. Using pump-probe soft x-ray spectroscopy we selectively probe the adsorbate electronic structure in both transient intermediates and the transition state region during catalytic surface reactions. With femtosecond optical laser mass-spectrometry techniques we probe the ultrafast dynamics and reaction mechanisms specifically in the reaction coordinate. This combination of experiments provides a high level of understanding of the microscopic processes that govern catalytic surface reactions.
