This question already has an answer here:

Why is the evolution-calendar-factory process running?

Here are some of the running processes (created with ps aux --forest)

 \_ /usr/bin/X -core :0 -auth /var/run/lightdm/root/:0 -nolisten tcp vt7 -novtswitch
 \_ lightdm --session-child 12 31
     \_ init --user
         \_ ssh-agent
         \_ dbus-daemon --fork --session --address=unix:abstract=/tmp/dbus-tGrbQ6SZd8
         \_ /usr/lib/evolution/evolution-source-registry
         \_ /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gconf/gconfd-2
         \_ /usr/lib/evolution/evolution-calendar-factory

AFAIK I don't need evolution-calendar-factory. I don't want it to run, since it takes up a lot of RAM Why is it started?

How to stop it starting the next time?
