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.

Introduction to FCC: Michael Benedikt
Astract: The introduction lecture will summarize motivation, scope, planning and organization of the FCC Study. Following the 2013 update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics, the Future Circular Collider (FCC) Study has been launched by CERN, to design an energy frontier hadron collider (FCC-hh) in a new 80-100 km tunnel with a centre-of-mass energy of about 100 TeV, an order of magnitude beyond the LHC's, as a long-term goal. The FCC study also includes the design of a 90-350 GeV high-luminosity lepton collider (FCC-ee) installed in the same tunnel, serving as Higgs, top and Z factory, as a potential intermediate step, as well as an electron-proton collider option (FCC-he). The physics cases for such machines will be assessed and concepts for experiments will be developed in time for the next update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics by the end of 2018. The FCC Study is organized as a global collaboration.
Abstract: FCC Physics - Challenges and Potentials: Christophe Grojean, Michelangelo Mangano
The triumph of the Standard Model is paradoxical: his success in describing with higher and higher accuracy the fundamental blocks of matter is daily reinforced by the LHC and still it provides no answer to the big questions concerning the fundamental laws that have shaped the Universe as we know it. New colliders beyond the LHC will probe the structure of matter and space-time to tinier distances and with higher sensitivity to reveal new natural phenomena and establish new paradigms for a better understanding of Nature.
In the short time since the Future Circular Collider concept emerged, many studies have already been performed to explore the vast array of measurements that the FCC will enable. These range from the most precise determinations of the properties of the Higgs boson and of electroweak and QCD interactions, to the direct search for new particles with masses up to several tens of TeV. We shall review some of the most significant results of these studies, and discuss their implications in view of the big questions that High Energy Physics faces today.
