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.

Modern materials science makes extensive use of atomistic simulation with High Performance Computing resources to calculate properties and atomistic structures of a wide range of materials. This three-day course will introduce participants to three popular European materials modelling packages - CASTEP, GPAW and CP2K - all of which have been widely used on HPC platforms in the UK and Europe. The course will cover the basic theory implemented in each of the codes, as well as instruction on how to use the functionality in each package.
Participants will undertake tutored practical exercises with each of the codes, in order to gain hands-on experience. The course will be taught by experts from the development teams of each code, supported HPC specialists from EPCC.
Participants can expect to gain enough experience to decide which code is best suited to their particular applications, and the ability to run calculations of moderate complexity using ARCHER, the UK National HPC Service.
Prerequisites: some background in atomistic simulation (e.g. Molecular Dynamics), and basic understanding of Density Functional Theory. No knowledge of parallel programming is assumed. Participants should bring their own laptops in order to connect to ARCHER for the practical exercises.
Timetable: Wed 23rd April 9.00 - 5.00 : CASTEP (Keith Refson, STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, UK) Thu 24th April 9.00 - 5.00 : CP2K (Marcella Iannuzzi, University of Zurich, Switzerland) Fri 25th April 9.00 - 5.00 : GPAW (Jussi Enkovaara, CSC, Finland)
