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 SKA1‐Low Telescope Architecture Team is organizing a consultation workshop to discuss issues relating to calibration of the SKA1‐Low telescope, and the implications that these have to the configuration and design of the array and subsystems.
The objectives of this meeting are to exchange and review the latest thinking on these issues with respect to their impact on achieving successful EOR observations, and to inform the community of the SKA office view of how best to define the telescope to optimize the probability of success. In particular we will discuss our framework and approach to calibrating the array, the physical effects that must be corrected, and the implications to the telescope configuration/layout in terms of station distribution and location. While the approach assumes that station beams are delivered as calibrated products, the present Consortium plans for doing this, and the measurements and data required, will also be presented. We would welcome your contributions to this discussion.
The format will be a series of topical discussions led off by invited presentations, and followed by a significant period of open discussion to allow participants to give their views on the topic. The meeting will be wrapped up by a session to discuss the reaction of the subsystem leads to the information presented and a summary of where the Office sees the collected wisdom taking the designs. A preliminary agenda is attached and will be updated in the INDICO website (here) as it evolves.
While this is a very busy time, there is an urgent need to settle some of these issues so that the new baseline design, configuration and system architecture can be finalized and Consortium work move forward with certainty.
We realize that many of you will already be travelling to pre‐existing meetings in Sydney or at the SKA Office, so to facilitate this and the participation of our Australian colleagues (and others) we will be organizing the meeting to make maximum use of the Vidyo link. However, we welcome those who can travel to come to the office for this meeting, where normal hospitality will be provided.
Preliminary list of topical sessions:
Introduction and working brief
SKA1-LOW Calibration Framework (Cornwell)
Station and antenna characteristics
Constraints and Configuration
Wrapup - Subsystem Implications
