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.

Illuminating biology at the nanoscale and systems scale by imaging
(Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Harvard University)
Dissecting the inner workings of a cell requires imaging methods with molecular specificity, molecular-scale resolution, and dynamic imaging capability such that molecular interactions inside the cell can be directly visualized. However, the diffraction-limited resolution of light microscopy is substantially larger than molecular length scales in cells, making many sub-cellular structures difficult to resolve. Another major challenge in imaging is the low throughput in the number of molecular species that can be simultaneously imaged, while genomic-scale throughput (i.e. the ability to simultaneously image thousands of molecular species) is desired for investigating systems level questions. In this talk, I will describe two imaging methods that we developed to overcome these challenges and the biological applications of these methods. I will first describe STORM, a super-resolution imaging method that overcomes the diffraction limit. This approach allows multicolor and three-dimensional imaging of living cells with nanometer-scale resolution. I will present both technology development of and biological discoveries enabled by STORM. I will then describe MERFISH, a single-cell transcriptome and chromosome imaging method that allows numerous RNA species and genomic loci to be imaged in individual cells. This approach enables mapping of the spatial organization of the transcriptome and genome inside cells and distinct cell types in complex tissues.
