I just found this planner to give it a try:


(Berlin and Paris are on the same timezone so I did not put only Berlin).

It's going to be challenging to find a timeslot for every body. The
least extreme timeslot for everybody to attend at the same time would


We could also arrange for a second timeslot later (that would be
Tuesday morning in Australia and China):


I wouldn't mind doing a meeting around 11pm on Monday evening from
time to time but it would still be very early for Beijing.

Just to let you know, I will be off from next Saturday till Monday
August 19 (big summer break :) so don't count on my for the first
meeting if you start the meetings  in the mean time.
