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.

Searches for New Physics at CMS and Precision Timing Detectors
Cristian Ignacio Pena Herrera
(California Institute of Technology (US))
Searches for dark matter and supersymmetry are part of an ambitious and well motivated quest to discover new physics at the LHC. In the first part of this seminar I will be presenting two novel searches for new physics using the data collected by the CMS experiment. The first is a search for dark matter in multijet events using the razor variables to discriminate signal from background events. The second is a search for anomalous production of Higgs bosons in association with jets, where the Higgs is reconstructed through its diphoton decay channel. The second part of my seminar will cover cutting edge detector R&D towards a device with ~10 ps time resolution. Such detectors will have a positively disruptive impact in future experiments such as the High Luminosity upgrade of the LHC by maintaining the current event reconstruction performance, which is expected to otherwise significantly deteriorate due to the high pileup environment.
