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.

An effective theory of quintessence perturbations (by Jorge Norena)
Aula Seminari (Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati)
Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati
An appealing alternative to the cosmological constant to explain the
accelerated expansion of the universe is quintessence, in which the
expansion of the universe becomes dominated at late times by a scalar
field. We perform a general analysis in the spirit of effective theories of
perturbations of a quintessence field, thus studying the theoretical
constraints on the parameter space. In particular, we argue that an
equation of state of the form $p = w\rho$ (where $p$ and $\rho$ are,
respectively, the effective pressure and energy density of quintessence)
with $w < -1$ can be attained by a single scalar field without the
theoretical inconsistencies of the models involving a ghost, and show that
it is possible to formulate models that evolve through $w = -1$,
differently with what is usually stated in the literature.
