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.

Due to the size and complexity of current HEP experiments like ATLAS and CMS, there has been a need in the last 10 years for ever increasing computational resources. This led to the development of the LHC Worldwide Computing Grid (WLCG) which provides all the storage computing power the LHC experiments need to process their data. In recent years, this vast resource has started to be used by other HEP experiments, for theory predictions, as well in fields outside HEP. However, due to the complexity and heterogeneous nature of all the different systems, efficient use of these resources has been hard for smaller groups. The DIRAC Workload Management system together with the Ganga Job Management system, developed for the larger LHC experiments, greatly simplify the use of these grid resources. This seminar will describe how these tools work and can be used as well as providing a 'How To' guide for getting started on The Grid.
