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.

From quantum-loops to penta-quarks: physics of heavy quarks with LHCb
SB1 1.120 (GSI Main Lecture Hall)
GSI Main Lecture Hall
The Standard Model of Particle Physics is one of the most successful and best tested theories in physics. A few observations however, as e.g. the existence of dark matter and the baryon asymmetry of the universe, are unexplained within the theory and require new physics phenomena at energy scales beyond the currently tested limits. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) offers the unique possibility to search directly for new particles and new effects. The LHC also provides the possibility to indirectly probe new phenomena using precision measurements of rare mesons decays containing a heavy charm or bottom quark.
Many rare decays of mesons with charm and beauty quarks are explained by quantum corrections. New particles could modify the predicted quantum loops and thus the decay properties of the mesons significantly. The comparison of precisely measured decay properties with exact Standard Model predictions provides a sensitive probe for new phenomena and particles with masses much above the directly accessible mass scales. The copious production of charm and beauty mesons at the LHC allows the measurement of the quantum corrections with a unique precision. The large production rates also allow searches for exotic hadron states with unusual quark content.
