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.

Recent discoveries of new materials, combined with modern nanofabrication techniques, have revealed novel ways of manipulating and confining light on the nanoscale. These developments offer opportunities to control a variety of light-matter interactions, and in particular, manipulate radiation emission from charged particles. In the talk novel phenomena that occur when charged particles interact with photons in such nanophotonic structures will be will discussed. These interactions can lead to novel physical phenomena including a new type of Compton scattering that can be used for compact x-ray sources, and new types of Čerenkov radiation that can potentially improve detectors for high-energy physics experiments.
In a conceptual breakthrough that is now more than 80 years old, Čerenkov showed how charged particles emit shockwaves of light when moving faster than the phase velocity of light in a medium. New effects, occurring because of the quantum wave nature of a charged particle, that create unexpected deviations from the conventional Čerenkov theory, have been predicted. Despite the years that have passed since its discovery, and much interest in the Čerenkov effect, it remained inaccessible to most nanoscale electronic and photonic devices because of the relativistic velocities it requires. In a recent project, it could be shown that a newly discovered material called graphene provides the means to overcome this limitation through the low phase velocity of light trapped on its surface. The interaction between the trapped light (called graphene plasmons) and the charge carriers flowing inside graphene presents a highly efficient 2D Čerenkov emission process, giving a versatile, tunable, and ultrafast conversion mechanism from electrical signal to photonic/plasmonic excitation.
