    DV 2014 Program-Online Registration
    Online registration for the DV-2014 Program will begin on Tuesday, October 2, 2012 at 12:00 noon, Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) (GMT-4), and conclude on Saturday, November 3, 2012 at 12:00 noon, Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) (GMT-4). Instructions for the DV 2014 Program are not yet available, so please check back later.

    This is the paragraph I quoted from travel.st***.gov, talking about the applying deadlines for DV-2014, but I have a small problem because I cannot understand what is the EDT and how to convert it to my time zone.
    P.S. : I live in Cairo, Egypt, and I think it's GMT+2

    If anyone could help me with this problem, Please tell me.
    Thank you so much.
