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.

Planet formation and evolution: key processes to understand the diversity of planetary systems
(Observatoire de la Cote d'Azur)
The discovery of a large number of extrasolar planets has demonstrated
that our own system is not "typical". Exo-planetary systems can be
very different from our own, and diverse from each other.
Understanding this diversity is a major goal of modern planetary
The formation of planetary systems is not fully understood, but major
advances have been obtained in the last 10 years. New concepts have
been proposed, such as the streaming instability for the formation of
planetesimals and pebble accretion for the formation of protoplanets.
It is also now clear that planets forming in the proto-planetary disks
have to migrate during their accretion, if their mass exceeds a few
times the mass of Mars. Accretion and dynamical evolution are
therefore very coupled processes. This leads to complex evolutions,
very sensitive to initial conditions and fortuitous events, that are
the key to understand the observed diversity of planetary systems. The
early formation of Jupiter and its limited migration due to the
formation of Saturn are two fundamental ingredients that determined
the basic structure of the Solar System. The lack of early formation
of giant planets typically leads to the formation of super-Earth
planets on short period orbits. There is also evidence that the vast
majority of planetary systems become unstable after the removal of the
protoplanetary disk. The effects of this instability are very
different depending on the masses of the planets involved. Our Solar
System also experienced a global instability, but fortuitously our
giant planets did not develop large orbital eccentricities.
