Abstract:


In this paper, we present a distributed multi-agent meeting
scheduling system for mobile devices. This mobile agent
system supports people on the move to locate feasible time
slots to meet with each other, using their mobile devices. It
negotiates the best suitable times integrating timetables and
time preferences from the participants. Unlike to current
approaches, the negotiation of the meeting time is fully executed
on mobile devices. As mobile devices are limited in resources,
the introduced protocol additionally allows, to outsource
the main part of the negotiation to a self-contained
scheduling service.
