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.

This introduction on collective beam dynamics focuses on high-intensity effects in synchrotrons like SIS18 or SIS100.
The charged particles in the beam interact (a.) with the beam self-fields they produce and (b.) with the induced currents in the vacuum pipe. This interaction leads to corresponding collective effects, such as "space charge" (self-field interaction) or "beam coupling impedance" (interaction with the surroundings). The beam can become resonantly excited or is even driven into exponential instabilities over many revolutions in the circular accelerator. These effects potentially limit the performance, they scale with the number of particles in the beam: their understanding (and mitigation) is crucial to safely operate synchrotrons like SIS100 at highest beam intensities.
We dive into the world of these collective effects in beam physics, exploring their mechanisms and how they can lead to beam loss. During the talk, we also look behind the scenes on how to numerically model such long-term effects, in particular employing high-performance techniques such as GPU computing.
