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.

Gamma-ray burst afterglow jet analysis In the multi-messenger Era
Hendrik van Eerten
(University of Bath)
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) associated with gravitational wave events are, and will likely continue to be, viewed at a larger inclination than their fellow GRBs without gravitational wave detections. As demonstrated by the afterglow of GW170817A, this requires an extension of the common GRB afterglow models which typically assume emission from an on-axis top hat jet. I present an updated characterization of the afterglows arising from neutron star merger jets, utilizing both trans-relativistic numerical calculations and simple analytic approximations of structured outflows. These will serve as a toolkit for both detailed and rapid qualitative modeling and interpretation of afterglows in the multi-messenger era. For example, in many cases, the afterglow temporal slope can be immediately connected to a ratio between the inclination angle and effective half opening angle of the jet. Our models, both numerical and analytic, will be made publicly available as an open source Python package and are readily implemented in statistical analysis packages and population studies (Ryan & van Eerten, manuscript in prep; github.com/geoffryan/afterglowpy). This work extends the jet model that has been used to model GW170817A in a series of papers including our Chandra X-ray afterglow discovery paper (Troja+ 2017).
