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 total solar eclipse of 21 August 2017 offered rare observing opportunities as the lunar shadow traversed an uninterrupted landmass of approximately 3000 miles, starting from western Oregon to South Carolina. Taking advantage of this unique opportunity, my international team, known as the Solar Wind Sherpas, spread across five observing sites, with almost identical equipment. In this presentation, I will describe the unique advantages of total solar eclipses for exploring the physics, chemistry and thermodynamics of the solar corona. I will briefly describe the imaging and spectroscopic observations that we carry out. I will present some scientific highlights from previous eclipse observations, and end with a few fresh off the press results from this eclipse.
