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.

Current status of the Cyclotron Facility at iThemba LABS
210 (Nishina build.)
The iThemba Laboratory for Accelerator for Based Sciences (LABS) is a multi-disciplinary research facility administered by National research Foundation under the department of science and technology (DST) of South Africa. This facility is situated about 30km outside Cape Town in the Western Cape Province. The main driver of this facility is the variable frequency separated sector cyclotron (SSC) with a K-value of 200. This year iThemba LABS is celebrating 30 years since the first beam was delivered from the SSC. The ion beams are first pre-accelerated by two solid pole injector cyclotrons denoted SPC1 and SPC2 before injected into the SSC for further acceleration to a desired energy. The SPC1 has an internal PIG ion source and is only used to deliver high intensity proton beam mainly for radioisotope production, as well as for proton and neutron therapy. The second injector cyclotron delivers different ion beams for Nuclear Physics research. Recently the facility has been upgraded in order to increase the beam intensity delivered to the radioisotope production station by installation of the flat-top resonator inside the vacuum chamber of the SPC1 and SSC.
In this talk I will give an overview of the iThemba LABS facility and recent developments and also talk about the future plans.
