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.

Quantum Technologies for High Energy Physics: the CERN Quantum Technology Initiative40m
CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, operates the largest particle accelerator in the world and has a long tradition of collaboration and excellence in fundamental physics research. Quantum Technologies have seen an incredible development over just the last few years in all their aspects, computing, sensing, communications, and theory. After a few years of pilot investigations, CERN has announced the creation of its Quantum Technology Initiative to understand the potential of these technologies for High Energy Physics, but also to contribute to their future development. This talk highlights the main objectives and current activities of the CERN Quantum Technology Initiative. A special emphasis will be placed on the Quantum Computing aspect and the activities carried out by CERN openlab, outlining the initial investigations that use quantum machine learning in High Energy Physics.
Dr. Sofia Vallecorsa is a CERN physicist with extensive experience on software development in the High Energy Physics domain. Dr. Vallecorsa coordinates the Quantum Computing area of the CERN Quantum Technology Initiative, recently established. She is also responsible for Deep Learning and Quantum Computing research within CERN openlab (http://openlab.cern.ch) which is a unique public-private partnership between CERN and leading ICT companies. Before joining openlab, Dr. Vallecorsa has been responsible for the development of Deep Learning based technologies for the simulation of particle transport through detectors at CERN and she has worked on code modernization projects in the field of Monte Carlo simulation.
