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.

Josh McFayden: A new measurement of lepton-flavour universality with the ATLAS experiment
A remarkable feature of the Standard Model (SM) is that each lepton flavour (electron, muon, tau) is equally likely to interact with a W boson. This is known as Lepton Flavour Universality.
In a recent ATLAS measurement, a novel technique using events with top-quark pairs has been exploited to test the ratio of the probabilities for tau leptons and muons to be produced in W boson decays, R(τ/μ).
In the SM, R(τ/μ) is expected to be unity, but a longstanding tension with this prediction has existed since the LEP era, where, from a combination of experiments, R(τ/μ) was measured to be 2.7σ higher than the SM expectation.
If the LEP result were confirmed to O(1%) precision it would correspond to an unambiguous discovery of beyond the SM physics. This latest ATLAS measurement obtains this level a precision - please join the seminar to discover whether or not it agrees with LEP!
