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 Higgs Boson plays a crucial role in the Standard Model, and this lecture is about the search for the Higgs at LEP, especially in the last year of LEP running, at the highest e+e- collision energies. The experimental signature for Higgs decays has to be picked out from all the other Standard Model processes. The debate on whether to extend the LEP running after a hint of Higgs events was seen gave a nail biting finish to the LEP programme.
Note: The lecture will be much easier to understand for students who have followed courses on the Standard Model and on experimental techniques. However, I will give a reminder of the existing constraints on the Higgs mass, and will explain the main production and decay channels, the experimental techniques used to pick out Higgs decays (especially b tagging) and the statistical methods used to assess the significance of the event sample selected.
