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.

Stability of currents and energization of electrons during magnetic reconnection in the context of the solar atmosphere and Earth's magnetosphere
(Austrian Academy of Sciences)
Flux emergence from the solar surface causes a global reconfiguration of
the magnetic topology. Subsequently, this induces electric currents by
acceleration of charged particles, in particular electrons. The rate of
the reconnection determines also the nature of the magnetic energy
dissipation mechanism, be it more nanoflare-like heating or a more
steady magnetic diffusion, which is still debated in solar physics.
Usually, MHD models implement a simple diffusion equation to describe
this magnetic energy dissipation and only with a plasma-kinetic
treatment once can actually check this assumption. In a PIC simulation
of anti-parallel magnetic reconnection, we can follow the actual
energization of electrons and the dissipation of the resulting
non-Maxwellian velocity distributions on spatial and temporal scales
that are otherwise inaccessible to a fluid-dynamics approach.
