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 course will present a full overview of the main characteristics of the Geant4 Monte Carlo toolkit, including Geant4 installation for Linux, geometry, tracking and physics processes. The goal of the course is to make the participants able to install Geant4 and to implement their own simple Geant4-based applications. The course will cover one week (Monday-Friday), with both theoretical lessons (approx. 20 hours) and hands-on practical sessions (approx. 16 hours). The course is open to researchers and students interested to Monte Carlo Methods, and in particular to physics of rare events. Please note that a limited number of 20 participants can be admitted. There are no participation fees.
Basic knowledge of the C++ computing language is required. Partecipants will need their own Personal Computer, equipped to support ssh connections with graphical windows (X11 forwarding) to a Linux machine that will be made available.
For Windows users, SSH Secure Shell (or putty) and xming-mesa are suggested. Additional fonts may be needed if willing to use emacs as text editor. The xming server must be launched before staring the SSH connection. To configure the SSH secure shell client for grafical forwarding: Edit->Settings->Tunneling. The select the "Tunnel X11 connections" and click "OK".
No additional software is needed for Linux and Mac users.
Additional material will be available online or distributed in electronic format.
The exercises for the hands-on training session will be posted in this webpage
