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.

Chirality is a ubiquitous concept in modern science, from particle physics to biology.
In quantum physics, chirality is linked to the topology of gauge fields due to the quantum chiral anomaly. While the chiral anomaly is usually associated with the short-distance behavior, recently it has been realized that it affects also the macroscopic behavior of systems possessing chiral fermions. In particular, the local imbalance betweenleft- and right-handed fermions in the presence of magnetic field induces the non-dissipative transport of electric charge ("the Chiral Magnetic Effect"). In heavy ion collisions, there is an ongoing search for this effect at Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at BNL, with a dedicated isobar run completed in June of 2018, and analysis results expected later in 2019. Recently, the Chiral Magnetic Effect has been discovered in ZrTe5 and other materials possessing chiral quasi-particles.This observation opens a path towards a "chiral qubit" potentially capable of operating at room temperature, and at much higher frequencies than the superconducting quantum qubits.
