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 development of high power lasers in the last two decades has opened a new field of research where astrophysical phenomena can be studied in laboratory experiments. This new class of experimental science is complementary to astronomical observations, which cannot always give conclusive explanations due to insufficient data or too long timescales of the investigated phenomena. The possibility of performing well-designed laboratory simulations to study processes that occur in astrophysical objects has been demonstrated and can contribute to understand different processes and to validate complex simulations. In this talk, we will give examples of this new approach.
In particular we will present a recent experiment aiming at investigating the interaction between two nested supersonic plasma flows. Understanding how the interaction might collimate an uncollimated outflow is of particular interest for assessing jet formation paradigms. We will show how experimental data combined with hydrodynamic simulations corroborate theoretical astrophysics investigations, up to now unsupported.
