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 study of the origins of electroweak symmetry breaking is a primary goal of experiments at the LHC.
These lectures discuss the theoretical underpinnings of the Higgs mechanism in the Standard Model and its supersymmetric extensions, including theoretical and experimental constraints on the Higgs boson mass. A survey of the main Higgs production and decay mechanisms at the LHC will lead to discussion of the main characteristics of Higgs boson signatures and the techniques available for background suppression. Some emphasis will be given on vector boson fusion processes in this regard.
Beyond Higgs boson discovery a more ambitious goal is the measurement of Higgs boson couplings.
The lectures will discuss some of the techniques for measuring their structure and size. Available QCD corrections for Higgs production and decay processes will be summarized since they are important for the extraction of Higgs properties with sufficient precision.
