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.

Semi-direct product of categories and twisted actions of categorical groups

A (strict) categorical group is a (strict) monoidal category with an additional operation of 'inversion' under monoidal product. It has an equivalent description in terms of crossed modules. In order to study the representations/actions of categorical groups, we introduce a notion of semi-direct product of categories. It turns out that there are many interesting examples of semi-direct product of categories. In particular I will give some examples where one of the category is a (strict) categorical group. We use the notion of semi direct product of categories to define a kind of 'twisted action' of a categorical group. If time permits I will discuss a version of Schur's lemma in this context.
