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.

Second meeting of the MIXMAX network on innovative pseudo-random number generators.
CERN is hosting the second meeting of the MIXMAX network, a collaboration between European institutes and CERN (EU project MIXMAX-H2020-MSCA-RISE02014) to develop a new class of pseudo-random number generators based on Kolmogorov-Anosov K-systems. These new type of generators demonstrate excellent statistical property and the aim of the project is to turn them in useful products for Monte Carlo simulations and to integrate them in the CERN software applications used by the LHC and other HEP experiments.
The aim of the second meeting is to summarise the results which have been obtained
by the Consortium during the first two years of the MIXMAX project devoted to the
new family of pseudorandom number generators and to the discuss the future plans.
