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.

Scattering theory and some myths of quantum mechanics

As a long-time practitioner of quantum theory applied to scattering, I would venture to suggest that an appreciation of the physics of scattering processes leads one to question some commonly-held views of general quantum mechanics. Following my own experience, I will discuss the Born - Oppenheimer approximation, the time – dependent Schrodinger equation, quantum coherence and entanglement, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle and the quantum to classical transition. The latter topic is illuminated particularly by the so-called Imaging Theorem of scattering theory. This theorem shows how both classical and quantum properties co-exist in an asymptotic scattering wave function. Although known for eighty years the significance of this result has been emphasized only recently.
