Time in Delft

Daylight savings time ends in Delft on October 31. All times in the schedule reflect the change to UTC+1.

Since RSD10 is both an on-campus and online event, it can be frustrating navigating time zones between where you will be and the event schedule. The first thing to remember is that all the times posted are UTC+1, also known as Central European Time (CET) and 1-hour ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). This time zone is in use during standard time in Europe and Africa. Daylight savings time ends in Delft on October 31, 2021; therefore, the times given are CET and UTC+1.

An exception is when you register for RSD10 or workshops and sessions via Eventbrite. Here you will view the session times in your current time zone (if you have allowed it to be detected). When you add the session to your calendar from Eventbrite, it will also show up in your time zone. TU Delft organiser page on Eventbrite.
