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 EGI Open Data Platform - Towards Scientific Data Hubs
The Open Data Platform is a new service in EGI to support scientific communities in the dissemination and re-use of open, distributed research datasets. The platform is based on the OneData technology and adds data management and data access capabilities - including data replication and 'bring your computation to data' - to existing EGI infrastructure services. The EGI Open Data Platform is developed in the H2020 EGI-Engage project to support communities in the creation of 'Data Hubs' on EGI. Such hubs would offer scalable data access and compute capabilities around scientific datasets for scientific groups at the large scale.
The EGI Open Data Platform is currently available as a prototype. The first part of the webinar will introduce this prototype, the second part will provide opportunity to discuss the adoption of the platform for specific use cases.
