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.

Model-independent analysis of heavy vector-like top partners
(Universite catholique de Louvain)
While a fourth generation of quarks is now strongly disfavored from the LHC results, many New Physics models predict the existence of new Vector-Like quarks as smoking gun signatures. Searches for new fermionic states heavier than the top quark are being pursued by the CMS & ATLAS collaborations, pushing the mass bounds towards the TeV scale.
In this talk, I will review the phenomenology of new heavy vector-like top partners, assuming generic couplings to the Standard Model quarks. A model-independent and general framework to study their peculiar signatures from both pair and single production will be presented, in terms of few parameters with a clear and simple connection with experimental observables.
Finally, I will present a reinterpretation of the existing bounds for non-minimal scenarios with general branching ratio assumptions and multiple vector-like quarks, and discuss new search strategies for the forthcoming searches at the LHC.
