It's there.
It's very useful to know when they all are to avoid conflicts.
An annoyance is that the interim meeting ics also includes a bunch of actual
in-person meeting details.  It's an annoyance once you start populating your
meeting week schedule, and you turn off the interim meeting view, and then
forget to turn it back on :-)

This is easy...
The calendar includes a pointer to your agenda.

Your agenda had contain to the webex/etc. info, right?  So just upload the
info there.  This also puts the webex/etc. info squarely under the control of
the chairs.

LPwan interim is starting in 3 minutes, and I see it point to
   https://datatracker.ietf.org/meeting/interim-2019-lpwan-07/materials/agenda-interim-2019-lpwan-07-lpwan-01

and if you look there, you see the webex URL.
