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.

If the scientific results financed by taxpayer money are “public goods”, is it useful or even ethical to spend billions Euros/$ to search for an elementary particle? Or to visit a Jupiter satellite and look for water on Mars? Or to observe a galaxy ad the edge of the Universe? In other words, is it useful to fund basic research? And if so, with what resources and to do what kind of science?
Competition has become one of the major driving forces for research. But are we sure that the competition-driven science model is truly the best one to make useful science?
More, is the very concept of knowledge changing today? The scientific method introduced by Galileo more that 400 years ago resisted at least three industrial revolutions. Are we sure is it still valid and applicable today, in the midst of the fourth industrial revolution?
The answers to all these questions are not obvious, on the contrary, they can contain many surprises not all pleasant or reassuring, answers among which we will try to orient ourselves using an unconventional point of view.
