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.

Statistical physics approach to compressed sensing and generalized linear regression
salle 435 (UMPA)
Bayesian inference and statistical physics are formally closely related. Therefore methodology and concepts developed in statistical physics to understand disordered materials such as glasses and spin glasses can be elevated to analyze models of statistical inference. We will present this approach in a rather general setting that covers analysis of compressed sensing, generalized linear regression, and the perceptron - a kind of a single layer neural network. At the one hand, this approach leads to the approximate message passing algorithm that is gaining its place among other widely used regression and classification algorithms. At the other hand, the related analyses leads to identification of phase transitions in the performance of Bayes-optimal estimators. We will discuss relation between these phase transitions and algorithmic hardness, and in the case of compressed sensing we will show how this understanding leads to a design of optimal measurement protocols.
