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.

This is the first lecture of the week given by Prof Roberto Trotta, recipient of the "Chaire Georges Lemaître" for the academic year 2018-2019.
During all week, we will have the chance to follow Roberto's lectures and tutorial dedicated on Bayesian statistics.
If you intend to follow the lectures, or simply would like to see only one of them, you MUST register below!
The problem of inference from noisy and/or partial data is ubiquitous in science. It is
particularly acute in observational disciplines, like astrophysics and cosmology, where we
don't have the luxury of being able to control our experiments.
I will introduce the fundamental principles of Bayesian inference as a complete theory for
how to learn from experience, and contrast this approach with the more traditional
frequentist view of probability. I will also discuss practical Bayesian methods and technology
to determine posterior distributions, including Markov Chain Monte Carlo and related
