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 von Neumann entropy is an extension of the classical Shannon entropy to quantum theory. It plays a fundamental role in quantum statistical mechanics and quantum information theory. Mathematically, given a quantum state described by a positive-semidefinite "density matrix", the Neumann entropy equals the Shannon entropy of the eigenvalues.
In this talk I will describe an approach to studying eigenvalues and entropies of quantum states that is based on the representation theory of the symmetric group. Its irreducible representations are labeled by Young diagrams, which can be understood as discretizations, or "quantizations", of the spectra of quantum states. In this spirit, I will show that the existence of a quantum state of three particles with given eigenvalues for its reduced density matrices is determined by the asymptotic behavior of a representation-theoretic quantity: the recoupling coefficient, which measures the overlap between two "incompatible" decompositions of a triple tensor product of irreducible representations. As an application, the strong subadditivity of the von Neumann entropy can be deduced solely from symmetry properties of this coefficient. If time permits, I will also discuss the connection of our work to Wigner's observation that the semiclassical behavior of the 6j-symbols for SU(2) -- basic to the quantum theory of angular momentum -- is governed by the existence of Euclidean tetrahedra, and more generally to Horn's problem.
