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.

Searching for hidden sectors via the vector portal
Kavli Meeting Room - room 305 (SLAC)
Kavli Meeting Room - room 305
There has recently been a flurry of activity around the idea of a new, "hidden" sector and it's relation to dark matter. This hidden sector couples weakly to the Standard Model through at least one of a limited number of portals. Via the vector portal, the Standard Model photon kinetically mixes with a new U1 gauge boson in the hidden sector (a "dark photon"). This presentation will lay out the current status and future prospects of searches for the dark photon, focusing primarily on the Heavy Photon Search experiment (HPS). Additionally, we will discuss possible experiments designed to search for light dark matter using high intensity proton or electron beam dumps. These two approaches (dark photon and light dark matter searches) are complimentary ways to explore the vector portal and both are necessary to obtain a complete picture of the hidden sector.
