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.

PILOT: Observing dust emission polarization from the stratosphere
Seminar room (LLR)
The PILOT stratospheric balloon-born experiment is designed to observe the polarization of cosmic dust thermal emission in the Far-Infrared, which is unique in revealing the geometry of the magnetic field in star forming regions of the interstellar medium and some physical properties of dust particles. Accurately measuring the spectral distribution of polarized dust emission is critical to cosmology measurements of the polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background currently being performed in order to demonstrate inflation in the very early universe. I will describe the PILOT instrument and its science goals and will present early results obtained during the first and second flights of the experiment, which took place recently from Canada and Australia.
