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.

Hotel do Mar - Sesimbra
Rua General Humberto Delgado,10, 2970-628 Sesimbra, Portugal
The Lisbon mini-school on Particle and Astroparticle Physics provides under-graduated students with a comprehensive introduction to the field, covering both theoretical and experimental aspects.
This school will give insigth to recent discoveries and to open challenges and will stress the research opportunities in the field in Portugal.
The school is mainly aimed to third year under-graduated students who have completed the course in Quantum Mechanics I.

Hands-on in Cosmic Rays: Morning Session
Unveiling cosmic particles with muons: the cosmic connection4h 30m
Our cosmos is full of radiation.
Its composition is made of massless particles (photons) and different mass particles such as protons, electrons, positrons
and heavier nuclei.
Their observation is a consequence of being accelerated with striking energies on the cosmos accelerator, at singular supernova regions.
Muons are smoking guns of these primary cosmic particles.
They are relatively short lived particles that are generated on interactions of primaries on the top of the atmosphere, ten kilometers above earth surface.
Its detection upon earth is due to its high energy that allows its survival for kilometers as was explained by the Einstein relativity.
On this hands-on project we are going to use a bi-scintilator telescope to detect muons and to measure its rate (number of muons per second).
From that measurement and its normalization that requires a small Monte-Carlo program to calculate the telescope geometrical acceptance, we shall
be able to estimate the muon vertical intensity and compare its value with literature.
