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.

The observation of the strong suppression of high pT hadrons in ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions has motivated a large experimental program using hard probes to characterize the deconfined medium created. A few selected results from RHIC which indicate a non negligeable interaction of high energy partons with a dense color medium before hadronization will be
first discussed. Despite many observables such as the nuclear modification factor, two and three particle azimuthal correlations have shown that partons lose energy in the dense medium by gluon radiations, the physical properties of the produced medium such as the value of the transport coefficient, qhat, or the initial gluon rapidity density, are not yet fully characterized by the available models.
Moreover the center of mass energy available at RHIC has allowed a deep ``leading particle physics'' study which clearly presents some limitations. For instance, trigger bias induced by the steeply falling particle spectra and surface emission bias, which provides only a lower bound to the initial color charge density, limit strongly the conclusions that can be drawn and motivate the study of more penetrating probes.
The gain in the center of mass energy expected at the LHC will definitively help our understanding on how the energy is lost in the system but will also open a new major window of study in high pT physics: the physics of jets on an event-by-event basis. I will concentrate on this topic and illustrate the new possibilities that the ALICE experiment will offer to first test pQCD and characterize the fragmentation function of the produced charged particles but also to better understand the medium created
with the measurement of such observables. Jet reconstruction in p+p and Pb+Pb collisions, improvements brought by the EMCal calorimeter as well as some expected physics performances will be presented.
