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 Rebirth of OTEC (Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion)
2505 Correa Road
Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) uses the temperature difference between cooler deep and warmer shallow or surface seawaters to run a heat engine and produce useful work, usually in the form of electricity. Hawaii has a long history of successful OTEC research, testing and design. In the late 1980's the U.S. Department of Energy announced that it was not necessary to provide more R&D finding in that OTEC was ready for commercial development.
A small group of engineers in Hawaii took up the challenge and has developed a viable design for floating OTEC plants to produce base load electrical power, fresh water and hydrogen. Large scale use of this technology would not only be able to supply much of the world's energy in perpetuity but would also tend to reverse global warming.
Participating in this work have been several academic institutions, industrial entities and governmental organizations in the U.S., in Europe and in Asia. Significant participation has also been forthcoming from Pacific island nations (particularly the Republic of the Marshall Islands). Funding for much of this work has been through the U.S. military.
