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.

Accelerating gradient is one of the crucial parameters affecting the design, construction, cost, and energy reach of the next generation linear accelerators. The main phenomenon that limits the gradient of rf linacs is vacuum rf breakdown. I present recent R&D efforts directed toward increasing the operating gradients of normal conducting accelerating structures. This work includes study of the basic physics of rf breakdown phenomena and novel methods of building the accelerating structures. The study of the basic physics includes high power tests of short X-band accelerating cavities at room and cryogenic temperatures, and high gradient tests of mm-wave accelerating structures. Novel methods of manufacturing include precision milling of full scale accelerating structures and use of new materials such as hard copper-silver alloy.
