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.

The possibility of doing neutron star (NS) asteroseismology is full of promises for a deeper understanding of NS composition and equation of state. The quasiperiodic oscillations (QPOs) detected so far in the tail of three giant flares in soft gamma repeaters have offered a first opportunity to identify the observed frequencies as stellar modes of oscillation. However, a clear cut solution of the inverse problem is made difficult by uncertainties in the nature of the oscillations and the many unknowns in the modeling of the star: mass, equation of state, magnetic field strength and geometry, etc. I will discuss recent results obtained from a re-analysis of the SGR 1806-20 data, which are consistent with a picture of numerous independently-excited modes that decay within a few tenths of a second. This has interesting implications for the rapidity of decay of the QPOs, which could occur by the previously-suggested mechanism of coupling to the MHD continuum.
