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.

Two GEM Applications: Forward EIC Tracker with Zigzag-Strip Readout & Muon Tomography for Homeland Security
Aula Seminari (LNF INFN)
Via Enrico Fermi, 40
Work on two applications of Gas Electron Multiplier technology is presented. The first application is a tracker for the forward region of an experiment at a future Electron Ion Collider (EIC) in the U.S. Specifically, the development of a cost-effective readout structure with zigzag strips for large-area GEM detectors is discussed. The zigzag structure allows a significant reduction in the number of strips and electronic readout channels for 1D detectors while preserving good spatial resolution. Recent results on efficiency, cross-talk, and angular resolution obtained from a beam test of a 1-m long trapezoidal prototype detector with radial zigzag strips are presented. Corrections for the non-linear strip response improve the angular resolution from 240μrad to 170μrad, which corresponds to just 12% of the angular pitch of the zigzag strips. The second application is GEM-based muon tomography that aims at 3D-imaging of well-shielded high-Z material, e.g. nuclear contraband in cargo for homeland security. This technique exploits multiple scattering of atmospheric cosmic ray muons, which is stronger in dense, high-Z nuclear materials than in low-Z and medium-Z shielding materials. The imaging performance of a compact Muon Tomography Station that tracks muons using 30cm×30cm Triple-GEM detectors with 2D readout placed on four sides of a 27-liter cubic imaging volume is presented. Using the observed scattering signatures, shielded objects can be distinguished from each other according to their radiation lengths. A 75cc depleted uranium cube is successfully imaged through 2-3cm thick medium-Z bronze shielding material.
