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.

AWAKE: The Proton Beam-Driven Plasma Wakefield Experiment
Spencer Jake Gessner
Salle 101 (LAL)
The AWAKE project at CERN is a proof-of-concept experiment for demonstrating electron acceleration in a plasma wakefield driven by a high-energy proton beam. AWAKE uses a 400 GeV proton beam to generate a plasma wakefield in a ten meter long Rubidium vapor cell. The CERN proton beam is much longer than the characteristic plasma wavelength. As the proton beam propagates though the plasma, a self-modulation instability arrises which forms micro-bunches at the plasma wavelength. The micro-bunches couple to the plasma wakefield and drive gigavolt-per-meter accelerating fields in the plasma. In this talk, I will discuss the first observations of the self-modulation instability at AWAKE, as well as future plans to inject and accelerate an electron beam in the proton beam-driven plasma wakefield.
