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.

Investigating the evolution of Pluto's atmosphere and ices with global climate models
(Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique)
Seminar room (LLR)
In July 2015, the NASA New Horizons spacecraft flew by Pluto and revealed an amazing and complex surface, mostly covered by nitrogen, methane and carbon monoxide ices. In particular, the landscape includes extensive methane frosts and a thousand-kilometre nitrogen glacier, which seems to have eroded and shaped the mountains surrounding it. Curiously, this massive glacier is located in the so-called "Sputnik Planitia" topographic basin, near the equator. What is its origin ? How do these ices evolve and interact with the thin atmosphere of Pluto ?
Using 3D numerical models, we are able to simulate Pluto's atmosphere and surface on different timescales. After a short description of the history of the mission, the encounter with Pluto, and the major scientific discoveries made to date, I will present our latest results on the activity of the ices, the atmospheric circulation, the formation of the organic haze...
