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.

We learn in undergraduate courses the intimate relationship between entropy and irreversibility: any irreversible process is characterized by an increase of entropy. In the last years and using concepts from information theory, we have been able to quantify irreversibility and relate this measure of irreversibility to the entropy produced along a process. More recently, we have applied these ideas to estimate the entropy production in biophysical processes. The entropy production is closely related to relevant quantities in biophysics which are hard to measure., such as the ATP consumption. Our technique allows one to estimate the entropy production even in the absence of currents and flows, where the standard methods from irreversible thermodynamics fail. We can in principle detect if a system is far from equilibrium in the absence of currents. In biophysics, this is equivalent to discern if a process is active or passive, valuable information to find out the physical mechanisms behind molecular motors and other systems.
