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.

The Young Experimentalists and Theorists Institute aims to promote interaction between the two halves of the PP community at the early career stage and encourage interest in phenomenology. Talks and discussion sessions are at a non-expert/intermediate level.
The emphasis of YETI'08 is on what has been learned at the Tevatron, and how that will impact on the LHC.
We will review various aspects of the experimental measurements, such as the importance of the trigger, the jet energy scale, the missing transverse momentum measurement and diffractive production as well as extracting physics with bottom quarks and the top quark analysis.
On the theory side, we will review Higgs and supersymmetric Higgs phenomenology, (particularly the differences between the MSSM and the NMSSM), other exotic Higgs models, tools for studying supersymmetry and a discussion of the differences between different models with extra dimensions.
The hands-on sessions feature the MADGRAPH and SHERPA programs. We will compute the same set of physical observables with each program, culminating in a comparison both with each other and with available data from the Tevatron. As well as learning how to use each tool, the comparison will improve understanding of the limitations of the tools.
