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.

New perspectives in effective quantum gravity and cosmological perturbation theory
Aula Seminari (LNF)
Via Enrico Fermi, 40
00044 Frascati (Roma)
In this talk I will show how the general framework of effective quantum gravity proposed by Brunetti, Fredenhagen and myself can be used to study problems in quantum cosmology. This formulation allows to derive some known results in (first order) cosmological perturbation theory from first principles and it provides a robust tool for computing higher order corrections. Conceptually, it works as a test ground for new ideas concerning construction of gauge invariant observables in effective quantum gravity. The non-local character of these observables leads to new interesting combinatorial structures arising in renormalization.
