HI all

Just so you know, Western Australia does not use Daylight Savings - which is different to the rest of Australia.

Subject: Daylight Savings Time changes approaching

The semi-annual fun with Daylight Savings Time is approaching. The time of WCAG meetings stays fixed in Boston, Massachusetts time. This means that the local time in other regions moves, sometimes temporarily and sometimes permanently, as Daylight Savings Times shifts on various dates and in different directions. A summary of the effects compared to the current time:

25 September: New Zealand meetings are an hour later
2 October: Australia meetings are an hour later
2 October: Israel meetings are an hour earlier
30 October: Europe meetings are an hour earlier
6 November: Israel and Europe meetings return to current time
6 November: Australia and New Zealand meetings are another hour later (two hours later than current)
6 November: Japan meetings are an hour later

After 6 November, meeting times are stable until the next Daylight Savings Time switch.

Further information about Daylight Savings Time changes is available at http://timeanddate.com/time/dst/2011b.html. We will try to provide correct local meeting times in meeting agendas, but if you are unsure you can convert the time from UTC or Boston time to your local time using the converter at http://timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html.
