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.

You are invited to register for this year's networking event for current postdocs and graduate students of the ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb collaborations to meet alumni of the LHC experiments.
This event offers an insight into career opportunities outside of academia. Various former members of the LHC collaborations will give presentations and be part of a panel discussion and elaborate on their experience in companies in a diverse range of fields (industry, finance, IT,...). There will be opportunities to ask questions during the panel discussion, the break and after the event. Refreshments and light snacks will be served.
The event is supported by the ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb Collaborations as well as the CERN Alumni Programme.
Attendance is limited with priority given to ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb members. Registration is obligatory and a fee of 10 CHF must be paid in advance. Information on payment methods can be found in the Payment box on the home page.
Note: A live web cast which will not be recorded is available. This web cast is only accessible with a valid CERN account.
PLACES ARE LIMITED AND A FEE OF 10 CHF PER PERSON WILL BE CHARGED, payable IN ADVANCE
Thibaut studied at Berkeley and Cambridge and was member of the ATLAS collaboration between 2009 and 2014. During his time at CERN he spent most of his time on the search for SUSY and TeV gravity.
Since 2014 he is working with McKinsey & Company, currently as a project manager in the Geneva office. His main focus is on tech-related clients operating in different sectors such as automotive, semiconductor, telecommunication and electrical engineering.
Patent attorney | Maikowski & Ninnemann12m
Frederick studied at Goethe University Frankfurt and was a member of the ALICE collaboration until 2012. During his time at CERN he focused on the measurement of J/psi -> e+e- in 7 TeV pp collisions using the ALICE central barrel detectors for his PhD thesis.
In 2012 he moved to Berlin and started an apprenticeship at the patent law firm Maikowski & Ninnemann as a patent attorney candidate. After passing the exams early this year, he is now working at the same firm as a German patent attorney.
Fatima studied at the Imperial College London and was a Member of the LHCb collaboration until 2015. During her time at CERN, she focused on rare B meson decays, specifically Bs -> mu mu, B -> e mu and Bs -> phi gamma.
Currently she is working as a consultant for ELCA Informatique in Lausanne. Her work is focused on creating solutions for business intelligence, data ware housing and data migration needs of clients.
Kim studied at EPFL and worked for the LHCb and Belle experiment, first as a PhD student, then as a Research Fellow.
After 6 years at CERN she joined the Crédit Agricole Private Banking Services Group in Lausanne as a Business Analyst for the Banking IT system. In this new assignment she benefited from her experience of having worked in a scientific environment with complex systems. She started off as the link person between the users of the Capital Markets Group and the developers during the setup of new products. Today, Kim manages a team of 8 Business Analysts and supervises projects in the areas of Asset and Wealth Management, Regulatory and Fiscal requirements as well as cash and security flows.
Niels van Eldik
Niels studied at solid state physics in Aachen and was a member of the ATLAS collaboration. During his time at CERN he wrote a programme in Fortran to stimulate the production of Higgs boson decaying into two taus. During his PhD he focused largely on simulation, digitisation and event reconstruction and was involved with the core tracking team of the ATLAS experiment of which he later became one of the leading developers making significant contributions to the muon reconstruction, both online and offline. Furthermore, he was involved in the CPU performance optimisation of the ATLAS reconstruction and simulation.
Later he co-founded HEALvetia. A health tech start-up company focused on providing better treatment of heart failure, deploying today’s technology. Within a small team he was responsible for all computing related issues for the telemonitoring platform including the backend system, the app and the dashboard for doctors. In two years’ time they developed their product and tested it with patients in collaboration with the CHUV hospital in Lausanne. However, despite good discussions with insurers and investors, funding was a challenge.
Short of money they decided to look for a regular job, and since September he is a senior software developer at Pix4D, one of the leading software firms for high precision 3D reconstruction from image data.

Presentations: Part 2
Data Science | Founder of Wild Tree Tech12m
Tim studied at University of Manchester and was a member of the LHCb collaboration until 2016. During his doctorate he worked on the D0 experiment.
Currently he is working for his own company called Wild Tree Tech. The company focuses on building scalable data tools and teams. Their clients, ranging from small financial startups and genomics professors to large UN organizations, usually desire to do new things with their data.
Monika did her PhD studies at the University of Bonn (ZEUS). After a postdoc on BaBar, she joined the Atlas Experiment (High Level Trigger) as CERN fellow. From 2003 onwards, she was a member of the CMS collaboration where she worked on first level trigger, forward physics, diffractive Higgs searches, electroweak physics and luminosity measurements.
After having worked for more than 20 years in HEP, Monika joined Accenture in 2016 as Associate Manager Software Engineering, with focus on big data technologies and analytics. Since then she has been deployed in big data projects in telecommunications and banking. She is also faculty for big data in the Accenture JumpStart program.
Michel studied at UCLouvain University in Belgium and worked for the MadGraph Monte Carlo simulation group in direct collaboration with different LHC experiment teams. He was also a postdoc at the Nikhef institute in the Netherlands.
Since 2010 he worked for McKinsey and later founded, together with two former PhD colleagues, an IT Consulting firm called B12. Their startup has quadrupled in size since then and is helping clients from various industries to solve their most complex business challenges.
Alexandru studied at University of Oxford, where he also performed a postdoc. During this time, he was involved in searches for the supersymmetric partners of the bottom and charm quarks and in studies relating to the operation of the Semiconductor Tracker.
In 2014 he joined Winton Capital Management, where he worked in several roles in the company’s data team and in various research projects. Currently, he is involved in the development of Monte Carlo techniques for financial market simulations.
Scott studied at University of Oxford and was a member of the LHCb collaboration. During his time at CERN he worked on the LHCb forward physics programme, analyzing central exclusive charmonium production and contributed to the development of the LHCb’s forward shower counters.
After leaving CERN, Scott joined ASI, an artificial intelligence startup in London, as Data Science Engineer. He focuses on the development of ASI’s cloud data science and machine learning platform and assists the data science consultancy team.
