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.

Laboratories, institutes and universities have over the past ten years taken up a technological and organisational challenge: the management of electronic databases. Such systems are built on three main points: a documentation base, a collection of files and an interactive catalogue. Structured information gives the benefit of a better dissemination of information which becomes permanently available for long term access over the Internet.
The CERN has long experience with such a system as it has managed one
since 1991 in the CERN central library, with documents such as preprints. Increasingly today, scientific communication is carried out via the exchange of multi-media data, such as photographs and videos. The CERN on-line picture database is a collection of interesting and historically relevant photographs. 2500 digitised items including photographs, charts and drawings can currently be accessed via the World Wide Web interface, at http://weblib.cern.ch/Photos/. During this talk, the construction of this database will be explained. Special aspects of photograph management will be underlined. Demonstrations of the catalogue will be made.
