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 SKA has recently received several Proposals in response to the Request for Proposals inviting organisations and industry to participate in the design of the SKA telescope. The process of evaluating the proposals is in full swing and it is foreseen that the process of allocating work packages will be completed during the third quarter of this year. All these aspects provide an excellent opportunity and a need for the SKA engineering and science community to get together during early October in Manchester.
The aim of this meeting is to provide a global overview of the status, progress and way forward for the project in terms of engineering, management and science. Part of the meeting will be devoted to presentations on the science capabilities of the suite of SKA telescopes, incorporating input from science assessment workshops, which will have been held over the previous months.
Work Package Consortia will present an overview of the composition, people, work, concepts and approach to their particular work package. In addition the SKA Office will provide the status, progress and way forward with regards to aspects such as the Concept of Operations, hosting agreements, the baseline design, project management and system engineering. The meeting will furthermore provide a forum for interface work sessions as well as general face-to-face discussions among SKA Office staff, members of the SKA Work Package Consortia and other members of the science and engineering community.
The main meetings will be held Monday to Thursday, October 7 to 10, with additional breakout and work sessions on Thursday, 10 October and Friday, 11 October.
