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.

Precision Cosmology with Cosmic Voids - Alice Pisani
Modern surveys allow us to access to high quality measurements, by sampling the galaxy distribution in detail also in the emptier regions, voids. Cosmic voids present themselves as a new tool to constrain cosmology. While the treatment of systematics might be simpler in these empty regions, with the aim of achieving the level of precision cosmology a careful modeling of such effects is necessary.
In particular, peculiar velocities affect the way we observe cosmic voids, and thus their effect needs to be understood. Using mock catalogues, I analyze the effect of peculiar velocities on void properties.
In this talk, I first describe the algorithm to find voids in galaxy surveys. I then present the results of the analysis of the systematic effects affecting voids and discuss it in the framework of current and future surveys. Additionally, I present a forecast for void abundances with the future Euclid and WFIRST missions and obtain, using the Fisher matrix formalism, a prediction for the constraints that voids will set on cosmological parameters.
