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.

Micro Pattern Gas Detectors. Towards an R&D Collaboration.
AB Auditorium Meyrin (CERN)
AB Auditorium Meyrin
A workshop on micro pattern gas detectors will be held at CERN.
The workshop may lead to the formation of an official R&D collaboration (probably RD51) on micro pattern gas detectors.
The goal of such a collaboration would be to bundle and coordinate detector development and simulation work, which is currently being performed in numerous groups at universities and research institutes. The collaboration will allow to:
• structure, coordinate and focus ongoing R&D efforts
• share knowledge, experience and infrastructure, agree on common test and quality standards
• coordinate widespread simulation efforts towards setting-up a common maintainable software package for gas detector simulations
• share investment of common projects (e.g. larger mask sets for GEMs)
This is expected to lead to:
• an improved understanding of operational parameters (gas, fields, readout structures, MC simulations),
• optimized detector performance,
• optimized readout electronics and readout integration with detectors,
• new detector concepts,
• progress in technological and economical aspects (base materials, fabrication methods, industrialization and cost effectiveness).
