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.

For each topics, from fundamental aspects to designs for linear colliders (mainly for ILC) will be explained.
According to the guideline of the school, I try to give lectures as basic as possible. It should be understood
without any backgrounds on accelerator physics.
It is very helpful for me if you send any comments before the lecture about the material, e.g. pointing
out anything hard to understand, anything wrong, etc.
• Role of damping rings
• High-level overview of structure, and
principles of operation
• Review of basic linear beam dynamics
• Damping ring lattice
• Radiation damping (derivation of damping
times, and the need for a
damping wiggler in LC damping rings)
• Quantum excitation and equilibrium beam
(Cockcroft Institute and University of Liverpool)
• Beam-beam interaction and crossing angle
• Accelerator-detector interface, shielding and
• Background and detector protection
• Beam monitoring and control at final focus
The links refer to previous recent presentations about CLIC
- the CERN summer student lecture from August 2007 (45min)
- the presentation from the HEP 2007 conference (25min)
- a seminar about CLIC (60min)
The actual ILC school lecture is posted under 'The Lecture'.
