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.

Recently, several experimental anomalies were discussed as possible signatures for a new light particle. In order to search for such signatures, we have measured the e+e- angular correlation in internal pair creation (IPC) for the the M1 transitions depopulating the 17.6 and 18.15 MeV states in 8Be, and observed anomalous IPC in the latter transition. The observed deviations from the M1 IPC in the case of the 17.6 MeV transition could be explained by the contribution of the background, which has E1 multipolarity. However, E1 or any other mixing cannot explain the measured peak-like deviation in the case of the 18 MeV transition. The deviation between the experimental and theoretical angular correlations is significant and can be described by assuming the creation and subsequent decay of a boson with mass M0c2 =16.70 MeV. The branching ratio of the e+e- decay of such a boson to the photon decay of the 18.15 MeV level of 8Be is found to be 5-8x10-6 for the best fit. Such a boson might be a good candidate for the relatively light U(1)d gauge boson, or the light mediator of the escluded WIMP dark matter scenario, or the dark photon, or the dark Z (Zd) suggested for explaining the muon anomalous magnetic moment. I am going to show the reliability of the data obtained, which will place such a particle into context with other experimental results, and discuss their implications.
