Dear all,

we have this problem twice a year: the discrepancy between the US and Europe on when to start DST creates a chaos. This year it will be worse than usual: indeed, DST in the US starts this coming week end (ie, 10th of March) whereas it starts on the 31st for Europe. Three weeks of disarray thus...

All W3C calls are set to Boston time (simply because that is where our hardware is). What this means for the three weeks starting next week is that:

- for all of our North American participants the telcos start at the usual time (you are the lucky guys:-)
- for all our European participants the call will start _one hour earlier_ than usual. Ie:

  RDF WG will start at 15:00 in the UK and Ireland, 16:00 in most of the rest of Europe
  Prov WG will start at 15:00 in the UK and Ireland, and 16:00 in most of the rest of Europe
  RDFa WG will start at 14:00 in the UK and Ireland, and 15:00 in the most of the rest of Europe

Ivan
