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.

Conference: May 27-29, 2021: https://nordic-rse.org/conference/
Online training reaches many more people, allowing to engage many more instructors, no need to travel.
Hard to replace coffee breaks and dinners in person. Are backup plans for putting the conference online necessary? CodeRefinery will likely try to postpone in that case.
We have discussed good online events experiences: making use of break-out rooms, etc.
Opportunity to Collocate/ Synchronize with LUMI and EuroCC events? We are aiming and collocating with Carpentry Connect 2021.
Benefit realization plan:
Radovan presented the CodeRefinery Midterm report to the NeIC Board, CodeRefinery will apply to the next open call (with less funding expected from NeIC).
Mid-term slides (go to slide 7): https://cicero.xyz/v3/remark/0.14.0/github.com/coderefinery/reports/master/mid-term.md/
French and Dutch participants: cooperation or paid workshops, sustainability: good if they are using our material, but we are not subsidizing them.
DK: national competence centre coming, currently DeIC doesn’t have access to the university channels.
GDPR and opt-in considerations: NeIC conducting an evaluation comparing Slack, RocketChat and RocketChat. Outcome will be available mid of January.
Benefits: instructor training seats and a number of workshops (6 centrally organized workshops)
Decision at last reference group meeting: Setting a deadline for end of February to apply for national centrally organized Carpentries workshops to keep them reserved, otherwise it’s open for who comes first.
Suggestion: After this deadline, Naoe would try to organize workshops locally (place will be online), matching with experienced instructors who would like to teach. Local help needed to advertise the seats.
Instructor certification doesn’t expire after one year of not teaching.
Feedback from SE: Administrative burden of organizing a Carpentries workshop is significant.
CodeRefinery can help with that. Naoe has collected and demonstrated experience in setting up workshops.
Do national workshops even make sense during online covid-19 times when we want to ensure benefit?
(Morris left the meeting.)
Local communities or contributing institutes (with local helpers) can be prioritized.
There is still the opportunity to have self-organized workshops. But for self-organized workshops we cannot use the Carpentries instructor mailing list to recruit instructors outside from “own” network.
Participant numbers for online meetings, depends on instructors (20 still the recommended number, typically 25-30). The guideline is: “Don’t leave anyone behind”
Where would a request for a workshop come from until February?
What would make an online workshop tailored to a specific community/ local institute: Dissemination priority, reserve seats.
To maximize the net benefit we should strive to invite competence we are lacking from our 6 tickets, complement missing expertise and get support for administrative burden.
Decision: Let take Naoe charge already now to organize workshops, first self-organized with (local) communities which would have priority, then from the quota. Naoe and Radovan to produce a document with suggestions and wording and once the RG agrees, we clarify these also on the CodeRefinery website.
