Atlantic and Eurasian eGov Meetings

March 19, 2012

One challenge for a global group like the eGovernment Interest Group is time zones. There is no time we can have a meeting that is not the middle of the night for someone who wants to participate. At this point, we are going to try having two regular meeting times, like this:

Atlantic Meetings will start at one of these times, and run about 90 minutes:

  1. 7am Los Angeles, 10am Washington, 3pm London, 4pm Brussels, Other Cities
  2. 8am Los Angeles, 11am Washington, 4pm London, 5pm Brussels, Other Cities
  3. 9am Los Angeles, Noon Washington, 5pm London, 6pm Brussels, Other Cities

If you would like to attend these meetings, please answer the eGov Atlantic Meeting Times poll. (Before filling out the poll, be sure the times are being displayed for your time zone.)

Eurasian Meetings will start at one of these times, and run about 90 minutes:

  1. 7am London, 8am Brussels, 2pm Beijing, 4pm Canberra, Other Cities
  2. 8am London, 9am Brussels, 3pm Beijing, 5pm Canberra, Other Cities
  3. 9am London, 10am Brussels, 4pm Beijing, 6pm Canberra, Other Cities

If you would like to attend these meetings, please answer the eGov Eurasian Meeting Times poll. (Before filling out the poll, be sure the times are being displayed for your time zone.)

Note that daylight saving time changes these relative times. The times given above are for the northern hemisphere summer. Right now, in mid-March, with the continental US having started DST before the rest of the hemisphere, we are during one of the periods when the relative times are not in the above configuration. These variations will be handled, going forward, by considering the Atlantic meeting time fixed to Los Angeles local time and the Eurasian meeting time fixed to London local time. To see the meeting time in your city on a particular date, use the “Other Cities” link, select “Modify Calculation”, and change the date.
