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.

Exact results in boundary-driven open quantum chains
(University of Ljubljana, Slovenia)
We will discuss a general non-equilibrium setup by which one can approach the quantum transport problem in one dimension. One considers a strongly interacting quantum chain with fully coherent bulk dynamics and driven out of equilibrium in terms of Lindblad dissipators which only act on degrees of freedom near the boundary, i.e. at the ends of the chain. Non-equilibrium state carrying the physical currents is then approximated as the steady state of the corresponding Markovian master equation.
I will present several analytical solutions along these lines and discuss their remarkable algebraic properties. For example, in the Heisenberg XXZ chain under extreme boundary driving we will show that the steady-state density operator of a finite system of size n is -- apart from a normalization constant -- a polynomial of degree $2n-2$ in the coupling constant. In the isotropic case we find cosine spin profiles, $1/n^2$ scaling of the spin current, and long-range correlations in the steady state. Furthermore, the perturbative (weak coupling) version of our ansatz [Phys. Rev. Lett. 106, 217206 (2011)] is used to derive a novel pseudo-local conservation law of the anisotropic Heisenberg model, by means of which we rigorously estimate the spin Drude weight (the ballistic transport coefficient) in the easy-plane regime. This closes a long standing question in strongly correlated condensed matter physics.
