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.

A parametrization for the elastic differential pp cross section at the LHC

We discuss the main features of recent LHC data on elastic pp scattering by giving a simple parametrization to the elastic amplitude, including two exponentials with a relative phase. We argue that such an amplitude, introduced a long time ago by Barger and Phillips (BP), in spite of its simplicity, is able to reproduce general aspects of elastic differential
cross section at LHC7, especially in the region |t|>0.2 GeV^2. Nevertheless, in order to cover the full range in |t|, we find that the original BP parametrization should be modified. In this context, we show that including the proton form factor in the BP amplitude improves significantly the description of data sets in te whole momentum-transfer range. These results, being almost model-independent, may provide good insights for model-building and can be used on checks of asymptotia in hadronic interactions.
