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.

Fluctuations and Correlations in Heavy-Ion Collisions1h
The analysis of event-by-event fluctuations forms a central component of the study of heavy-ion collisions. Such fluctuations - and their associated correlations - emerge in a variety of different experimental observables, including anisotropic flow, mean p_T, and total charged multiplicity, and studying them systematically has yielded valuable insights into the evolution of the collision system.
In general, fluctuations can affect any phase of a heavy-ion collision's evolution. In this presentation, I will explore two kinds of fluctuations: one, which occurs in the initial state of the collision system, and the other, which occurs during the intervening evolution of the system. I will discuss some of the ways that practitioners model these fluctuations phenomenologically, and I will describe some techniques for accessing experimentally their effects on the spatio-temporal geometry of the collision system. I will conclude by commenting on the implications of these results for the field of heavy-ion physics.
