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.

From precision to accuracy; the universe observed on different scales (remote talk)
Auditorium Vivargent (LAPTh)
9, chemin de Bellevue
Cosmology has entered an era of unprecedented precision. With measurements of the fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background radiation, their counterparts in large-scale structure in the form of baryon acoustic oscillations and the development of the cosmic distance ladder, the concordance model of cosmology is established as a robust standard model, able to describe the universe from seconds after the Big Bang to today and on spatial scales ranging from galaxies to the entire visible universe. The values of its free parameters are now pinned down to remarkable precision and future galaxy surveys will allow further improvement in precision.
However, with growing precision, some tensions have started to emerge. Although it is tempting to attribute these growing tensions to signs of new, exciting physics, it is important to make sure that our cosmological model is accurate on top of being precise; that is, to ensure that these tensions are not, in part or completely, systematic offsets due to our imperfect modeling of a complex, multi-scale system.
In this talk, I will present some tests of the accuracy of our standard model, focusing on some central assumptions of the model and addressing in particular: the geometry of the very large-scale universe, the propagation of light in an inhomogeneous universe, and ways to probe the small scale distribution of matter.
