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.

The field of plasma wakefield acceleration, which the network plans to develop, is changing fast. Interesting electron beams of 0.3–1 GeV, with 1.5–2.5% energy spread, have now been produced in several places including France, Germany, the UK and the US, with promising reproducibility. Conventional accelerator laboratories are now interested to see if an operational electron accelerator can be built and used successfully for pilot applications in science. Here, a low repetition, plasma-based FEL is a central goal. However, first pilot applications at low energy for HEP are also being considered. To avoid replication of work and to gather critical mass, a European project with distributed work across many labs is envisaged for creating such a new device. Amongst other benefits, sharing of facilities and tests could ease the present restrictions on beam time experienced by many researchers.
EuroNNAc member institutes are planning to apply for an EU Design Study within H2020 for a "European Plasma Accelerator with high quality and Pilot Applications". In this meeting we will discuss the envisaged application, exact scope and finalize the participants.
In addition, several new technological ideas in the area of plasma acceleration are being considered for applications in the H2020 program of future emerging technologies (FET). The preselected three proposals will be discussed with the goal to arrive at an optimized and coherent overall program for European plasma acceleration efforts.
