DST changes will lead this spring to a longer period (3 weeks) than usual of time discrepancies between US and Europe. For most Europeans the SWD telecons  of 11, 18 and 25 March will be one hour earlier.

Semi-annual reminder of the start of Daylight Savings Time -- aka
Summer Time -- coming soon to the US.

Most of the US will be moving its clocks forward this year on March 9
(two weeks from yesterday).  This is 3 weeks earlier than Europe.

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 next month, Europeans will need to
join teleconferences 1 hour earlier between 9 March and 30 March.

After 30 March most teleconferences will be back on the same
relative local time for Europe.

The [1]teleconference calender is the authoritative source for
the Zakim schedule -- this page is generated from the same
database that nightly downloads into the hardware.

The calendar shows UTC times for each day of each teleconference
in the dated (monthly calendar) section.  The UTC times are all linked
to a service that will give you the corresponding local times for major
cities around the world *for that particular date*.  In the conference
details section of the calendar, both the Boston local time and the
UTC time are shown *for the next occurrence* of each teleconference.

If you are unsure about the scheduled time of any teleconference,
check the UTC 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].
