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.

Problems with the dark matter and dark energy hypotheses, and alternative ideas
Martin Lopez Corredoira
(Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias)
Abstract: Two exotic elements have been introduced into the standard cosmological model: non-baryonic dark matter and dark energy. The success in converting a hypothesis into a solid theory depends strongly on whether we are able to solve the problems in explaining observations with these dark elements and whether the solutions of these problems are unique within the standard paradigm without recourse to alternative scenarios. We have not achieved that success yet because of numerous inconsistencies, mainly on galactic scales, the non-detection so far of candidate particles for dark matter, and the existence of many alternative hypotheses that might substitute the standard picture to explain the cosmological observations. A review of some ideas and facts is given here.
