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.

Theoretical calculations for hadronic high energy process are predominantly based on QCD factorization framework which allows separating the perturbatively calculable parton level cross-sections and non-perturbative parton distribution functions (PDFs) describing the structure of hadrons (nucleons or nuclei). Because of the non-perturbative nature PDFs are typically determined from fits to experimental data. In this presentation, I provide an introduction to global analysis of collinear PDFs with the emphasis on the nuclear PDFs (nPDFs). I also provide a brief review of the available nPDFs and recent results as well as comment on the connection with the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC).
