As far as I know, there are no built-in hooks like this (how would it
know what you want to do with the ics file, exactly?). You can
retrieve the file via XHR, parse it, and load the data via API calls.
Seems like this might be a little tough:

Your best option there would likely be to fetch the ics from the
server, parse it with any one of a number of libraries, and output a
JavaScript array or object.
