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.

Cascading failures in networks due to overload and interdependence

Modern infrastructures such as power grid, internet, gas and water pipelines as well as social, economic and financial systems can be modeled by isolated or interdependent networks, in which the elements can fail due to overload, interdependency, or both. Often a failure of a few elements can cause a cascade of failures, which results in the collapse of a large fraction of the system, for example a huge blackout, or a financial crisis. Many different systems show a remarkable universality in the phenomenology of cascading failures, which in many cases can be described as a first order phase transition with two possible states: almost intact and almost completely failed, suggesting that many
