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.

Event generators today are indispensable as tools for the
modelling of complex physics processes, that jointly lead to
the production of hundreds of particles per event at LHC
energies. Generators are used to set detector requirements,
to formulate analysis strategies, or to calculate acceptance
These lectures describe the physics that goes into the
construction of an event generator, such as hard processes,
initial- and final-state radiation, multiple interactions
and beam remnants, hadronization and decays, and how these
pieces come together. The current main generators are
introduced, and are used to illustrate uncertainties in
the physics modelling. Some trends for the future are
