Summary We present an agent-oriented approach to the meeting scheduling problem and propose an incremental negotiation scheme that makes use of a hierarchical structure of an individual agent's working knowledge. First, we formalise the meeting scheduling problem in a multi-agent context, then elaborate on the design of a common agent architecture of all agents in the system. As a result, each agent becomes a modularised computing unit yet possesses high autonomy and robust interface with other agents. The system reserves the meeting participants' privacy since there are no agents with dominant roles, and agents can communicate at an abstract level in their hierarchical structures
