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 n-FAME (nuclear Fe Alloys: Modelling and Experiments) workshop is organized in the framework of the Joint Programme on Nuclear Materials (JPNM) of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA). The latter is an alliance of leading public research organizations with the goal to contribute to achieving the SET-Plan objectives of low-carbon energy-mix by 2050 and accelerate the development of energy technologies, by:
Strengthening, expanding and optimizing EU energy research capabilities
Pooling and integrating activities and use of resources
Sharing national facilities & expertise, overcoming fragmentation
Realizing pan-European research Joint Programmes
Combining national and Community sources of funding
Streamlining and coordinating national and European energy R&D programmes
Developing links and sustained partnerships with industry
As part of the objective of low-carbon energy, a new generation of nuclear reactors, Gen IV, and associated fuel cycles, characterized by increased safety, security, efficiency, and sustainability can be developed by acting now. In this framework, the JPNM is one of the many joint programmes of the EERA aimed at ensuring the availability of qualified structural and clad materials to safely withstand severe conditions and requirements foreseen in Gen-IV nuclear systems, namely high temperature, high fuel burn-up (i.e. high neutron dose), corrosive environments. This requires solutions to general outstanding issues for nuclear materials that are key for safety and efficiency:
Screening of existing materials, development of innovative materials
Experimental characterisation and qualification/validation
The development of models that predict the behaviour of materials, making use of computer simulation tools capable of reproducing the changes they undergo in operation, is one especially important challenge in support of the safe, sustainable and economic exploitation of current and future nuclear power plants.
The n-FAME workshops are organised in this framework as a forum for scientific discussion between researchers working actively with experiments and models to understand in depth the behaviour of steels used for nuclear energy when subjected to irradiation. Irradiation (mainly neutrons) modifies the macroscopic mechanical properties of all materials, specifically steels, by producing changes at the nanoscale level. As a consequence, physical models must address the problem starting from what happens to the atoms that form the material, and spanning from there all scales, up to the plant component. This requires the combination of advanced modelling tools, largely based on computer simulation, and refined experiments, in a so-called multiscale modelling approach. Of all scales, the n-FAME workshops tend to focus on the behaviour at the small ones, which are addressed using fully physical approaches and require the use of extremely sensitive materials characterisation techniques, in order to make the link with experiments. As such, ab initio calculations and interatomic potentials, applied in molecular dynamics or kinetic Monte Carlo models are the main focus on the modelling side, together with experiments that make use of techniques such as transmission electron microscopy, positron annihilation, atom probe tomography, small-angle neutron scattering, and many others. However, the intention is also to create a link with higher scale models of use for the description of the mechanical behaviour of materials, starting from dislocation dynamics to crystal plasticity up to homogenization techniques for the analysis of large pieces of materials, as well as mechanical probing such as in tensile or impact tests.
