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.

Fundamental Physics from the Cosmic Microwave Background: Neutrino Masses and Inflation
DrJames Colin Hill
2505 Correa Road
The cosmic microwave background (CMB) remains the preeminent source from which to extract information about fundamental physics from cosmology, due to its clean, well-understood origin and immense constraining power on many types of new physics. The next decade of CMB observations will yield answers to at least two fundamental questions: (1) what is the absolute mass scale of the neutrinos? (2) did large-field inflation source the initial density perturbations in our universe? In this talk, I will explain the routes by which these answers will be obtained. Both are reliant on highly precise measurements of the polarization of the CMB, which can be used to measure the growth of structure via gravitational lensing (answering the first question) and can be used to search for the signature of primordial gravitational waves (answering the second question). I will highlight the major role that the Simons Observatory and CMB-Stage IV experiments will play in these exciting developments. Finally, I will highlight additional unique information about the physics of inflation and the growth of cosmic structure that could be extracted from precise measurements of the CMB energy spectrum, which has been the focus of renewed theoretical attention and experimental proposals in recent years.
