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.

Particle physics has, for the last 50 or so years, led the world in making statistical inferences from large datasets.
We have produced tools like ROOT, whose I/O and reflection libraries were well ahead of their time, and of course the World Wide Web.
However, the rest of the world has now overtaken us in terms of data quantities, processing power, and human investment.
Furthermore, the break down in Moore's Law coupled with the huge increases in datasets from projects like the HL-LHC, DUNE, or the Square Kilometer Array pose significant challenges to our current analysis computing model.
This seminar will make the case that computing for particle physics analysis is undergoing a phase transition to rethink the way we undertake high-level analysis within our experiments and to make better use of tools developed outside of HEP.
I will summarize community efforts to increase our support for the Python programming language, the development of the "columnar analysis" approach, and efforts to build an "analysis description language" particularly in the context of the FAST-HEP project.
As a bonus these approaches offer improved analysis reproducibility, reduced learning times, and better support for machine learning techniques.
