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.

Dear ATF2 Review Committee Members and Contributors
Many thanks for your kindest cooperation and contribution to the
ATF2 Technical Review organized by ILC-GDE and held at KEK, April 3- 4, 2013.
We have been very pleased to hear that the review went well with many presentations
well prepared and with very productive discussion between reviewers and presenters/audience.
We also very much appreciate the closing summary by the Chair, Nick, and
we may expect the review report to be given within a few weeks.
We would thank again for everyone's cooperation.
With our best regards,
Akira Yamamoto for the review organizers
With the achievement of the milestone 70 nm vertical beam size in the recent December run, we believe that now is a good opportunity to take stock of the project and its goals. The review itself will be comprehensive and focused on both the status of the project and the next steps which need to be taken to achieve the as yet unachieved published ILC Technical Design Phase goals (37 nm vertical beam size, stabilisation). Furthermore, the importance of the ATF2 programme for ILC was acknowledge in the recent PAC TDR technical review. In particular the PAC report noted that “The lack of progress towards the 37 nm ATF2 IP goal is a concern. Several issues have already been resolved, and the currently scheduled modifications should lead to significant progress towards the goal.” This review is primarily to address this observation.
Specifically, the goals of the review are to:
evaluate and comment on progress made toward achieving the stated goals;
assess the current readiness of the ATF/ATF2 complex toward achieving the goals, including, for example, understanding of beam dynamics and expected instrumentation performance;
comment on lessons-learned at the ATF/ATF2 for the ILC complex and how these may be included in the ILC design;
discuss future plans and set milestones for the short and medium term towards achieving the ILC goals.
With the ILC goals in mind, the types of questions we will endeavour to answer are:
· Is the ATF2 machine well understood in terms of its accelerator performance
(requirements, tolerances, tuning algorithms, diagnostics)?
· Does the ATF routinely provide a stable low-emittance beam to allow ATF2 tuning
to proceed in an efficient manner?
· Given the current status and knowledge of the ATF2 hardware, what are the major
challenges and possible hurdles to achieving 37 nm?
· What are the exact plans for demonstrating ‘stability’ and how will they be implemented?
· Given the answer to the above, what hardware upgrades (if any) need to be considered to
mitigate identified problems which are limiting performance?
· If the above upgrades or modifications are not practical, what is the realistic performance
expectations from ATF2?
· What are the KEK management’s plans and schedule for ATF2 to facilitate a successfully
conclusion to this part of the programme? How will the broader international collaboration
interact with these plans to achieve them?
