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 renormalized volume of quasifuchsian manifolds

Quasifuchsian manifolds are an important class of hyperbolic 3-manifolds, classically parametrized by two copies of Teichmüller space. Their volume is infinite, but they have a well-defined finite "renormalized volume" which has nice properties, both analytic and "coarse". In particular, considered as a function over Teichmüller space, the renormalized volume provides a Kähler potential for the Weil-Petersson metric; moreover, it is within bounded additive constants of the volume of the convex core and is bounded from above by the Weil-Petersson distance between the conformal structures at infinity. After describing these properties, we will outline some recent applications (by Kojima, McShane, Brock, Bromberg, Bridgeman, and others) to the Weil-Petersson geometry of Teichmüller space or the geometry of hyperbolic 3-manifolds that fiber over the circle. We will then explain how properties of the renormalized volume suggest new questions and viewpoints on quasifuchsian manifolds.
The talk will be accessible to nonexperts.
