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.

After a few years of upgrade, the two Advanced LIGO detectors started taking data in September 2015 and shortly after recorded the first directly-detected gravitational wave signal. The discovery was announced on February 11, 2016 by the LIGO scientific collaboration and the Virgo collaboration, which have been analyzing their data together since 2007.
In this talk, I will start by reviewing the main gravitational wave sources. Then, I will describe the upgraded interferometric detectors and focus on the detection itself: how the signal was identified, how its significance was established and what physical information can be extracted from this single event. Finally, I will conclude on the prospects of the worldwide network of advanced detectors for the coming years.
