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.

Vector-like quarks at the LHC: non standard channels
Aula Seminari (LNF)
Via Enrico Fermi, 40
00044 Frascati (Roma)
Searches for new vector-like quarks at the LHC by both ATLAS and CMS have set mass bounds above the TeV. These searches, however, usually rely on a set of assumptions about the properties of such quarks. After discussing these assumptions, I will show how it is possible to explore different scenarios by relaxing some of them. I will focus in particular on vector-like quarks with large width, on the role of NLO corrections for single production, and on the possibility that vector-like quarks decay into new scalar exotic states.
