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 XENON experiment aims to detect weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) via their collisions with xenon nuclei, using a low background, two-phase time projection chamber. With 1-ton of ultra pure liquid xenon as target, an energy threshold below 10 keV and a background rejection power above 99.5%, XENON could reach a sensitivity close to 10−46 cm2 for spin-independent WIMP-nucleon cross sections. To verify the XENON approach to direct dark matter detection, a first prototype (XENON10) was developed and operated for a period of several months at the Gran Sasso Underground Laboratory (LNGS) in Italy. XENON10 data have resulted in a 90% C.L. upper limit of 8.8 x 10−44 cm2 for a 100 GeV WIMP. XENON100, a new detector with 170 kg total liquid Xe mass, is currently under commissioning at LNGS; the goal is to start the science run in at the end of 2008. The status and WIMP sensitivity expectations for the new experiment will be presented and compared to the reach of colliders and indirect detection, as well as to theoretical predictions from physics beyond the Standard Model.
