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.

CERN-HSF has been accepted by Google in the GSoC 2019 program! Most of the project proposals have already been published in the CERN-HSF website and therefore students are starting to contact mentors.
Thus, we are now in the student-organization interaction period (Feb. 26 – Mar. 25), when mentors are supposed to:
Evaluate their students by means of coding exercises. The objective is to verify that the student has the required skills for the proposed work and to find out which student/s are strong candidates for the project. See attachment for an exercise example.
Be responsive when students contact them. This is a template that you can use to answer to prospective candidates for your project.
Sign up at:
* The GSoC website (invitations have been sent, please contact us if you have not received it).
* The CERN-HSF Google group
Please note that signing up does not guarantee a student!
