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 Physics of Musical Instruments, or What Do a Tuba, a Tsunami, and the Sun Have in Common?
(IOAP, Technische Universitat Berlin)
This lecture will deal with the properties of musical instruments, particularly their oscillatory properties and with the sound waves they generate. The musical instrument will be described by a combination of a sound generator with one or several band filters and a sound emission device.
In particular, the basic properties of sound will be presented - investigated in the real time space (physicist's view) and in the frequency space (pitch; musician's view). Periodic waveforms (e.g. sine-wave, saw-tooth) and their modification by broad band filters (formants) and sound emitting devices (e.g. resonance boards) will be discussed. These so called sonograms will be used to analyze several types of instruments - brass, the human voice, the piano and if time allows the string instruments. Their properties will be analyzed, and samples will be played.
This will be put into context with resonant properties of water waves (e.g. tsunami) and that of the Sun (helioseismology).
