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.

HiggsTools Journal Club XIV: Toolkit for discoveries @ LHC
(Durham University /Imperial College London)
Yacine Haddad (U. Durham & CMS)
The recent results from the LHC on the high mass diphoton research have pointed out an excess at 750 GeV in both ATLAS and CMS experiments. In the wake of these results, a question remains on all lips; Is it really a new boson? When can we say that "the observed excess" on our mass distribution is a new particle? How can we quantify the degree of certainty?
In this talk, we will try to address these critical questions taking as an example the 750 GeV excess and the Higgs discovery in the diphoton channel. Therefore, we will review the statistical methods by introducing the concept of the significance and upper limit under the frequentist and Bayesian approaches. A special attention will be then devoted to results interpretation at LHC.
