Computer scheduling of papers as it was developed for the 1960 meeting of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) is described. The FASEB meeting is the largest scientific meeting held in the United States each year. The technique developed for FASEB can be applied to schedule any meeting with parallel sessions.

Scheduling to reduce conflict in meetings

Conflicts in scheduling can be treated as defining an undirected linear graph independently of the relation of the activities in conflict to additional constraints of time and space. Each connected

New approaches for groupware scheduling Fábio

Towards a new generation of more intelligent and powerful groupware scheduling tools that will increase productivity by minimizing coordination effort, a multidisciplinary application of knowledge from these areas is proposed.
