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 gravitational-wave astronomy: from the first detections to the future ground-based and space-based projects1h
After the first gravitational-wave detection by a merger of two black-holess, in 2015, the gravitational-wave astronomy has evolved rapidly. In 2017, a first binary neutron star merger has been detected, with several electromagnetic counterparts, producing a wealth of results, as the first measurement of the gravitational-wave speed and an alternative measurement of the Hubble constant. At present, the LIGO and Virgo detectors are performing their 3rd observing run: 12 events have been detected, and a total of about 60 gravitational-wave candidates (mostly binary black-hole mergers) have been identified. Upgrades of LIGO and Virgo are planned in the decade 2020-2030, increasing the scientific potential of the network, which will include two more detectors in the next years, in Japan and India. In the decade 2030, the Einstein Telescope project, an underground gravitational-wave observatory with arms 10-km long, will further increase the reach of ground-based detectors, and it will enlarge the observational bandwidth towards lower frequencies. Around 2032 the European space project LISA will extend the gravitational-wave spectrum towards the sub-Hz frequencies, detecting gravitational-waves from supermassive black-hole mergers. In this seminar I will give an overview of the main results obtained by LIGO and Virgo between 2015 and 2020 and then I will discuss future projects and their scientific potential.
