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.

Bill Thompson, journalist and technology critic, will talk about "Building a Digital Public Space".
In 2003 journalist and technology critic Bill Thompson coined the phrase ‘the dot.commons’ to describe the open, enabling public online space that the internet made possible, and expressed his concern that pressures from government and commercial players were limiting its potential.
The dot.commons is now usually referred to as the Digital Public Space, but the principles are the same, and both his hopes and fears have been realised.
In this talk Bill Thompson will describe the evolution of the model of the DPS and explore some potential online futures that might emerge, considering how people will engage online as media converge, access becomes pervasive and interactions rely on digital networks, and what that might mean for the wider society.
