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.

Exploring the Merits and Challenges of Hyperon Physics
Walter Ikegami Andersson

(Final PhD seminar)
Binary hyperon production in antiproton-proton annihilations will be carried out with the PANDA experiment at FAIR, and probes the strong interaction in the non-perturbative regime where the relevant degrees of freedom are unclear. The self-analysing decays of hyperons provide a straightforward way to study reaction dynamics via the measurement of spin observables. However, since weakly decaying hyperons can travel several centimeters before decaying, they are challenging to reconstruct. This is because conventional track reconstruction algorithms assume that charge particles originate in the experiment interaction point.
In this thesis, software tools are developed for the reconstruction and fitting of charged particles in the collaboration-wide software package PandaRoot. Pattern recognition algorithms are developed for the reconstruction of charged particle tracks with displaced vertices. Three algorithms that reconstruct the longitudinal momentum in the Straw Tube Tracker (STT) of PANDA are developed. They are based on a combinatorial approach, a Hough Transform, and a recursive annealing fit. The implementation and performance of these algorithms will be presented. The track fitting scheme of PandaRoot is overhauled to treat the five particle species that PANDA is expected to measure, namely electrons, muons, pions, kaons and protons. The new track fitting scheme will be outlined.
When the PANDA experiment is taken into operation, beam time will be allocated to many different measurements. For this reason, feasibility studies are performed in this thesis. The production of Lambda-hyperon pairs is simulated at 1.642 GeV/c and the production of charged Cascade-hyperons is simulated at 7.0 and 4.6 GeV/c beam momenta. The feasibility of reconstructing the reactions exclusively as well as the spin observables in the reactions will be presented.
