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 4th edition of the Higgs Centre School of Theoretical Physics will take place in May 28- June 1, 2018 at the Higgs Centre, James Clerk Maxwell Building, Edinburgh. The scientific programme starts at 9:00 on Monday, May 28th, and ends at 16:00 on Friday, June 1st. The School comprises two in-depth lecture series, each involving five 2-hours lectures delivered on the blackboard, and a similar number of tutorials. For this year's School we are delighted to have:
Alex Pomarol (Barcelona): "State of the art of Physics Beyond the Standard Model”
Lectures: Monday through Friday 9:00-11:00 in Lecture Theatre A.
Tutorials: Monday through Thursday, 11:30-13:00 in JCMB 3217 Teaching Studio.
Abstract: I will start with a brief introduction on how effective field theories (EFT) are constructed, taking as simple examples the first attempts towards the SM. I will then introduce the SM as an EFT, showing its strengths and weaknesses. In particular, I will discuss its accidental symmetries, consistency, no-lose theorems for discovery, unexplained experimental evidences, and naturalness issues that will provide motivations for physics beyond the SM. Main part of the course will be devoted to describe new physics attempts to solve the strong CP problem and hierarchy problem, and their experimental implications. I will conclude with new directions that particle physics could take in the future if the absence of experimental hints for BSM persists.

Rafael Porto (São Paulo, Brazil): "Effective field theory approach to gravitational dynamics"
Lectures: Monday through Friday 14:00-16:00 in Lecture Theatre A.
Tutorials: Monday through Thursday, 16:30-18:00 in JCMB 3217 Teaching Studio.
Abstract: This course will provide an introduction to the new field of gravitational wave (GW) science oriented towards theory students. The first lecture will be a generic overview of the present and future of the field. During the remaining lectures we will illustrate the basic ideas and concepts with hands-on calculations. We will emphasize the analytic side, as well as the cutting-edge new tools recently developed—based on field theoretical ideas that originated in particle physics—to construct the most accurate template bank for GW searches from binary sources. We conclude with an outlook for future GW observatories, the type of foundational questions that we may be able to address through GW precision data, and the challenges ahead.
