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.

It is generally stated that the determination of the light travel time up to the order G2 is sufficient for modelling space missions in project --- such as LATOR, ASTROD, SAGAS, ODYSSEY or GAME --- designed to reach an accuracy of 10-7 to 5 × 10-9 in measuring the post-Newtonian parameter γ. However, this statement has to be re-examined in light of our recent demonstration that a so-called `enhanced' term of order G3 in the time delay may become comparable to some of the terms of order G2 when the emitter and the receiver are almost on opposite sides of the central body --- a configuration of crucial importance in experimental gravitation.
This talk yields an overview of the new methods enabling us to carry out the calculation of the light travel time as a function of the positions of the emitter and the receiver (time transfer function) at any order of approximation for a large class of static, spherically symmetric metrics generalizing the Schwarzschild solution. The time transfer function is explicitly determined up to order G3. The enhanced terms are inferred from this solution and their significance for some tests of general relativity in the solar system is analyzed.
To finish, the appearance of enhanced terms in the direction of light propagation is discussed.
