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.

Neutron stars are compact remnants of supernova explosions. They have radii of 11-13 km
and masses comparable to that of the sun. One could expect neutron stars to be quiet, dead
remnants of stellar evolution. Instead, they happen to produce most spectacular, extreme
radiative phenomena. This talk will give a broad overview of neutron star activity and recent
progress in understanding its mechanisms. Neutron stars generate powerful beams of coherent
radio waves, pulsed high-energy gamma-rays, relativistic electron-positron winds, and giant
X-ray flares. Some neutron stars live in binary systems and eventually merge, emitting strong
gravitational waves and creating explosions observed from cosmological distances. Recent
observational discoveries will be discussed, including the exciting detection of gravitational
waves from a neutron star merger and its electromagnetic counterpart.
