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.

Speaker: Dominique Bertola (CERN Visitors and Local Engagement)
D. Bertola has worked as IT specialist in data acquisition systems for CERN experiments. He joined in 1992 the outreach and communication group to make the first permanent exhibition of CERN. Nowadays he works for the CERN Visits Service where he leads the CERN guides training.
The course objectives:
o Understanding communicating basics
o Speaking to a general public
o Developing self-knowledge
o Learn to know the others and their role in RADSAGA Consortium
After her studies in communications and public relations, Julie started working in the CERN Press Office in 2012 and in 2016 she joined the CERN Social Media Team. Nowadays, as CERN social media manager, Julie works closely with writers and the audiovisual production team to produce content to engage CERN’s social media audiences.
We are living in a connected age, and this is providing us with new opportunities and ways to do outreach. In this presentation, we will show you how social media can be a useful tool for you to share your knowledge and passion about science. We will showcase a few best practices and case studies, and get you thinking about ways to use social media to act as ambassadors for science, do outreach and build connections.
Interactive applications are a powerful way to engage audiences and accelerate the learning of specific topics.
They can be used in Science Centres, Classrooms and Special Events to complement more traditional Outreach techniques.
At CERN we conceive interactive installations which explore the educational possibilities of this approach.
In this presentation we will have a peek into the principles, the technology developed, the projects, the context and scope, and hint about what will come in the future.
The 600 MeV Synchrocyclotron (SC), built in 1957, was CERN’s first accelerator. It provided beams for CERN’s first experiments in particle and nuclear physics. In 1964, this machine started to concentrate on nuclear physics alone, leaving particle physics to the newer and much more powerful Proton Synchrotron (PS).
The SC became a remarkably long-lived machine. In 1967, it started supplying beams for a dedicated unstable-ion facility called ISOLDE, which carries out research ranging from pure nuclear physics to astrophysics and medical physics. In 1990, ISOLDE was transferred to a different accelerator, and the SC closed down after 33 years of service.

The presentation will cover the main topics of functional safety with particular regards to standard developed for the automotive and industrial markets.
We will cover the different factor affecting safety, including the reliability of the underlying technology fabric, the design implementation and the application.
Techniques to analyze and mitigate the causes of failures will be presented as well as the most common tools used in this process.
First of all, we will start by an overview of the effects that can be induced in electronic components by radiation. For each effect, we will introduce how to characterize it and define the applicable terms and units.
Then, applicable test methods and standards will be presented and compared and we will conclude our theoretical approach of radiation tests by standard radiation test plan examples.
In a second time, back to “real-life”: Examples of radiation facilities used by CNES to perform radiation characterization of electronic devices will be presented. We will introduce the fact that many details may either complicate the test preparation or interfere with its execution and the final data analysis.
Speaker: Dr. Gerhard Drolshagen, Space Environment Studies, Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg
The radiation environment in space is not constant but shows variations on different time scales. The trapped radiation belts, the flux of cosmic rays and the normal solar wind are always present and relatively stable over periods of years or longer. Protons can have lifetimes in the trapped radiation belt exceeding 10s of years. These components of the radiation form a sort of ´radiation climate´. But even these types of radiation vary: the solar wind can become more energetic at certain times, electrons in the van Allen belt have typical lifetimes of only days to weeks before they are lost and replaced by new electrons. The populations and positions of the trapped radiation belts can vary and even the formation of temporary extra belts was observed. In addition, there is a secular change of the Earth magnetic field which is weakening by several percent over some decades and which effects the trapped radiation belts. Cosmic ray fluxes are modulated by the solar cycle. A higher solar activity leads to more magnetic shielding and reduced cosmic ray fluxes.
On shorter time scales of days to hours there is even more variation in radiation components. These ´Space Weather´ effects include flares of energetic electromagnetic radiation (x-ray flares) and solar outbursts of energetic particles, mainly protons, at energies of 100s of MeV. The most energetic particles from such solar events can reach Earth within hours. Coronal mass ejections of energetic plasma take typically a few days to reach Earth. The plasma disturbs the geomagnetic field of Earth and can have a large range of effects from modifications of the radiation belts, interference with radio communication and navigation signals to the induction of ground currents.
This lecture will address the variability of the space radiation environment near Earth and its connection with the so-called Space Weather.
