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 Advanced Level Accelerator Physics course is a follow-up of the Introductory level course and is composed of core lectures on accelerator physics in the mornings and a practical course (14-16 hours of hands-on tuition) in the afternoons. The participants will select one afternoon course from the three proposed. For the afternoon courses, the basic idea is that the participants select a topic for which they have no or very little preliminary knowledge. This should allow the participants to discover and get training in a new field of accelerator physics. A series of seminars and tutorials will complete the programme.
A successful participation at this course requires some basic knowledge of accelerator physics or experience acquired through professional work. As this course introduces advanced and contemporary concepts, knowledge of classical mechanics, electrodynamics, as well as mathematics for physics or engineering at the university entrance level is expected.
The level of the CAS "Introductory Course" or equivalent can be considered adequate. In particular, knowledge of the very basics of linear beam optics and longitudinal dynamics are anticipated. As this advanced course combines lectures together with computer based hands-on exercises, the students should be familiar with the use of computers and at least one programming language. It is the responsibility of the students to ensure that they meet these requirements.
