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.

On the Habitability of Saturn’s Icy Moon Enceladus
(University of Vienna)
Saturn’s icy moon Enceladus became famous for its erupting water plumes, which most likely origin in a (global) subsurface liquid water ocean. The detection of silicon-rich, nanometre-sized dust particles and the abundance of various salt components in a certain population of E-ring grains suggest that its subsurface aquifer is (or at least was) in direct contact with the underlying rocky core, which might imply water-rock interactions like serpentinization. Therefore, the most promising area on Enceladus where life may exist is at the seafloor of this subsurface water reservoir.
We performed numerical experiments to test the possibility of low temperature serpentinization on Enceladus. Further, we focused on the possibility that Enceladus’ subsurface ocean might be a habitat for methane producing Archaea, i.e. methanogens. Therefore, we tested different hydrogenotrophic methanogenic strains in respect to their tolerance towards potential inhibitors detected in Enceladus’ plume. Based on the results of these experiments, we performed high pressure experiments in the range of 10 to 90 bar.
Our study combines studies of various scientific fields and introduces novel aspects on potential habitats for microbial life in the Solar System, especially concerning icy moons.
