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.

According to QCD calculations on the lattice, as well as to several measurements performed at the SPS, RHIC, and LHC facilities, a state of matter composed of strongly-interacting deconfined quarks and gluons (the Quark-Gluon Plasma, QGP) is formed in heavy-ion collisions at ultra-relativistic energies.
Produced in hard-scattering processes in the initial stage of the collision, heavy quarks are a powerful tool to probe the partonic interactions ongoing in the medium. The analysis of the pT-differential spectra and of the azimuthal anisotropy of heavy-flavour signals in nucleus-nucleus collisions provides a crucial piece of information to achieve a microscopic picture of the system.
The ALICE experiment at CERN is equipped to measure electrons and muons from charm and beauty hadron decays and to reconstruct D mesons in hadronic decay channels. The results obtained in Pb-Pb collisions at 2.76 and 5.02 TeV will be discussed.
Measurements of open heavy-flavour signals in proton-proton and proton-Pb collisions are required to provide the necessary reference for interpreting the Pb-Pb results and to study initial-state effects. Considerable attention has also recently been given to the dependence of the production yields on the event multiplicity in small systems. These recent open-heavy flavour measurements, performed by ALICE in pp, p-Pb, and Pb-Pb collisions, will also be presented.
