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.

Higher-order QCD calculations via local subtraction
Aula Seminari (LNF)
Via Enrico Fermi, 40
00044 Frascati (Roma)
Accurate predictions in perturbative QCD at colliders require the calculation of physical observables beyond leading order accuracy.
However, the evaluation of higher-order radiative corrections to fully differential cross sections is hampered by the presence of infrared singularities in intermediate stages of the calculation, which prevent a straightforward implementation of numerical techniques.
A possible way to consistently treat infrared singularities is through a so-called subtraction algorithm.
In this talk, we describe a general local subtraction scheme for computing QCD cross sections at NNLO accuracy.
We overview both the various conceptual issues that must be addressed and present some specific technical aspects of our subtraction algorithm.
