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.

IceCube is a cubic km Cherenkov detector located in the South Pole designed to observe high energy astrophysical neutrinos over GeV energies, optimal for most astrophysical searches. Although designed for high-energy neutrinos, it also monitors our galaxy for supernovae using neutrinos of tens of MeV thanks to a buffering system that enables the temporary capture of both sub-threshold and threshold hits.
Supernovae can also emit high-energy neutrinos with the shock between the ejecta and the circumstellar material from the progenitor star, creating a high flux of neutrinos with energies on the order of TeV and above. These neutrinos could reach earth 0.1 day - 1 year after the low-energy neutrinos.
In this talk, I will describe my service work for IceCube, where I monitor and maintain the buffering system (Hitspool), and my analysis work aimed to investigate whether we can extend Icecube's supernova observational reach to the local galactic group by using these high-energy neutrinos.
