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.

The ELAG (European Library Automation Group) Conference is Europe's premier conference for library and information management technology. For more than twenty-five years, ELAG has provided a unique opportunity for European library systems professionals to discuss current problems and future challenges, and to exchange best practices. ELAG participants include more than 450 members in 27 countries all over Europe. The meetings aim at in depth discussions of particular library automation topics and at the promotion of informal exchange of ideas and experience. Topics of past conferences have included digital libraries, library portals, institutional repositories, web services, digital preservation and open source software. The topics covered are technical and meant for participants with an appropriate technical background. An ELAG conference consists of three parts :
presentations in a plenary session related to the main theme of the seminar
workshops that run in parallel and that provide an opportunity for small groups of participants to discuss one issue in depth
lightning talks of no more than 5 minutes on specific topics or very current developments Participants sign up for one workshop, and may volunteer to give lightning talks.
The day before Elag 2010 will start, we organize a pre-conference of one day. There are two tracks. Both tracks will continue as a workshop during the rest of the conference. Please bring your own computer, so you can take your work back home. Track one will be a Solr boot camp, track two will be a Web Services boot camp.
Solr Boot Camp
This boot camp will provide hands on experience working with Solr. The architecture of Solr will be described and demonstrated. Participants will learn how to install Solr and create indexes on any collection of metadata. Attendees can bring their own computer and leave the bootcamp with their own Solr based search solution. Bring your own data source or work together to create a search and browse interface on your active SFX targets. Use your SFX export tool and have your current A-Z list replaced by a powerful Solr solution. Participants already familiar with Solr, may find their peers, get together, share their knowledge and explore special features.
Web Services Boot Camp
This boot camp will provide hands on experience working with a variety of web services. Key library web services will be described and demonstrated. Participants will learn the basics of key search protocol; how to work with data in a variety of formats: XML, JSON, HTML and manipulate data from web services using both client and server side scripting languages. Attendees will learn about existing web services utilizing Linked Data and skills needed to utilize Linked Data. Come and learn how to effectively use web services in your library applications.
