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.

Some geometric aspects of the theory of convex polytopes
Amphithéâtre Léon Motchane (IHES)

: I will discuss some examples where differential geometry, topology and combinatorics of polyhedra can benefit from each other, and review some tools that make this possible. In particular, I will focus on the following two topics
-- the Hirsch conjecture, concerned with bounding the running time of the simplex algorithm, and an application of CAT(1)-geometry to this problem.
-- two problems of Legendre--Steinitz and Perles--Shephard concerning realization spaces of polytopes, and their solution based on solving discrete PDEs.
All notions will be introduced in the talk; I intend to make a friendly introduction to the theory, so non-experts are welcome.
