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 Xth International Pulsar Timing Array (IPTA) workshop will be held in Pune, India between June 10 to 21, 2019. The IPTA consortium consists of established Pulsar Timing Array (PTA) efforts, that include the European Pulsar Timing Array (EPTA), the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves (NANOGrav), and the Parkes Pulsar Timing Array (PPTA) as well as the emerging efforts like the Indian Pulsar Timing Array (InPTA), South African Pulsar Timing Array and the Chinese Pulsar Timing Array. The IPTA consortium aims to detect gravitational waves using an ensemble of millisecond pulsars located in our Galaxy. The meeting is aimed to i) foster close interactions between researchers working on individual pulsar timing array (PTA) experiments ii) provide detailed hands-on training for young researchers on the nuances of gravitational wave data analysis and ii) to develop links with the wider gravitational wave community. A status update from the established PTAs and the emerging PTAs will be presented  along with detailed discussions on various data sharing and data combination issues relevant for the IPTA consortium. During the first week (the "student week"), experts in the field will share their knowledge and organize hands-on exercises to explore the data-sets and data challenges. During the second week, the active researchers in the field will help to advance the frontiers of our understanding through presentations and discussions on the road ahead that include various challenges and strategies. Apart from invited and contributed talks, updates from IPTA working groups and panel discussion on policy issues regarding the sharing of data and resources are included in the science program. A one day visit to upgraded GMRT is part of the program. Address : Pune, India

You can submit an abstract for reviewing.
