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 Kansai Photon Science Institute and Progress with Laser-acceleration of Protons
DrPaul Robert Bolton
(General, Kansai Photon Science Institute)
At the Kansai Photon Science Institute we pursue high power laser development and high field (intensity) laser-plasma science with a broad range of applications in mind. Applications can require laser-driven secondary sources of particles (electrons or protons) or photons that include Compton source development and a soft x-ray laser. At lower laser intensity levels we also maintain an atomic, molecular and optical program that is aimed at intense THz waveform development that will be applied to isotope separation. I will briefly introduce the diverse program at KPSI. I will describe present performance of our high peak power laser, J-KAREN (~0.6 PW) and current plans to upgrade it to a peak power level near 1.5 PW (J-KAREN-P). In this context the state of laser-driven proton acceleration at KPSI will be described. With a laser pulse energy of only 7.4 J we have observed proton energies up to ~ 42 MeV by focusing to a peak intensity of 1021 W/cm2 with high contrast (2x109). At few MeV energies and with permanent magnets we have also demonstrated proton focusing and relative biological effectiveness for killing human cancer cells. As a laser development and applications institute our expertise emphasizes development of laser-driven sources which can include injectors for hybrid acceleration schemes. Our strategy for developing energetic laser-driven proton beams includes two parallel paths: (i) achieving the highest possible proton energies in intense single shot experiments and (ii) developing an integrated laser-driven ion accelerator system (ILDIAS) at lower energies for repetition-rated applications.
