Europeans: please prepare for a schedule adjustment:
Between March 14 and March 28, the time difference between US and
Europe will be 1 hour less than it currently is.
That means that a teleconference scheduled for 11AM ET that would
normally be at 5PM CET will be at *4PM* CET.
This is due to lack of synchronization between Daylight Saving Time in
the U.S. and Europe that results in a 2 week 'wobble'.

Dear chairs

Semi-annual reminder of the upcoming start of Daylight Saving Time,
which will start in a week.

Most of the US will be moving its clocks forward on Sunday March 14
2010. This is two weeks earlier than Europe.
Most European clocks will move 1 hour relative to UTC on Sunday March 28 2010.

Between March 14 and March 28, the time difference between US and
Europe will be 1 hour less than it currently is.

Most Zakim teleconference times are based on the US clocks. Therefore,
unless groups have sent specific requests to base their teleconference
times on some other timezone or to change your teleconference times
this month, most folk outside the US will need to join teleconferences
*one hour earlier* between 14 March and 28 March.

The time links in each date of the teleconference calendar [1] confirm
the time that Zakim has been instructed to start the

If you are unsure about the scheduled time of any teleconference,
check the UTC (Z) link above the teleconference name on the specific
date of that teleconference; e.g. [2].

If you require any changes to individual teleconference times, please
be sure to give adminreq sufficient notice [3].
