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.

FuncX: High Performance Function as a Service for Science40m
There is a growing need to support the execution of short-duration tasks on High Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructure. To address this need we have developed FuncX: a function serving platform that is designed to provide on-demand execution of stateless functions directly from existing HPC infrastructure. FuncX aims to remove the barriers that exist between functions and large-scale computing infrastructure by simplify execution of function-based workloads, enabling integration of HPC capabilities in applications and analysis pipelines, and ultimately increasing the usability of computing infrastructure. FuncX uses the Parsl scripting library to provide low-latency, scalable, and reliable execution of tasks across heterogeneous computing environments. It securely isolates function executions within containerized execution environments and leverages Globus, as an identity and access management framework and to automate the movement of functions and data. In this talk I will describe the use cases that have motivated the development of FuncX, present the design of the FuncX execution framework, and present the prototype implementation and early experiences using the system.
