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.

Photon and Photon+Jet Probes of Heavy Ion Collisions1h
Events containing a high transverse momentum (pT) prompt photon offer useful tools to study QCD in many hadronic collision systems. In proton+proton collisions, they provide precision tests of perturbative QCD. In proton+nucleus collisions, they are sensitive to a broad set of physics effects such as the modification of the parton densities in nuclei, including the onset of non-linear QCD or saturation effects at low nuclear-x, and the energy loss of partons in the nucleus before the hard scattering. In nucleus+nucleus collisions, they can be used to probe the dynamics of the hot, dense Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) medium. Because photons do not carry color charge, they are unaffected by the QGP, and thus provide information about the momentum, direction, and flavor (quark or gluon) of the associated hard-scattered parton before it begins to shower and become quenched. This allows for a detailed exploration of the absolute energy loss and modification of jets by the QGP medium. In this talk, I will review the status and prospects for inclusive photon, di-photon, and photon+jet/multijet measurements in heavy ion collisions with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider and with the future sPHENIX detector at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider.
