“Yes but… our calls are defined and specified in Boston time and not in UTC. Hence my impression that it *will* change your call timing for our winter period.”

Indeed it will make it worse. It will be 2230 In India and 2:00 AM in Japan.

With regards

  Not 1 hour, Actually it will be 9:30 hours earlier, because I will be in US from Oct 22 to Nov 11 [grin].

:-)


  On serious note, India does not switch time, it remains +5:30 UTC always. And I really like this arrangement, daylight time changes confuses most of us.

(Lots of people, me included, hate this daylight time change. It confuses everybody!)

  See below. 

  Luckily, one of the two critical weeks is TPAC week, so we may not experience it (except for those who dial in, you will have to be careful). What is affected is our call on the 30th of October: for UK people, the call will be at 4pm, for the rest of Europe, the call will be at 5pm. Avneesh, I am not sure how this affect you exactly, I would expect your call will be one hour earlier, too. I am also not sure what the situation is in Brazil.

  Things return to "normal" on the week after TPAC, except for Avneesh, for whom the call will stay one our earlier until spring (I believe…)

  US people are the lucky ones. Nothing changes for them, they can just laugh at the confusion of non-US colleagues…

    Dear Chairs,

    This is a friendly reminder about the upcoming Daylight Saving Time change.

    Most European clocks shift back 1 hr on Sunday 29 October 2017. Most of the US clocks shift back 1 hr a week later, Sunday 5 November 2017. China and Japan do not observe DST.

        https://www.timeanddate.com/time/dst/2017b.html

    Between October 29 and November 5, the time difference between US and Europe will be 1 hour less than it currently is. This means that for that week the teleconferences that are scheduled according to the US clock will start *one hour earlier* in local time for most Europeans.

    For WebEx teleconferences that were scheduled according to a timezone other than US or Europe, please confirm the time arrangements with your meeting host.

    The meeting planner tool below may be helpful to find the time for your web meeting across time zones:
