Abstract

Have you ever been in a meeting room, waiting for people to arrive? Often, someone in the meeting will bring up an instant messaging (IM) client and send a message to the people who haven't arrived yet, saying something like, "We're in room A305, will you be joining us?". Proposed here is an integration between calendar and Instant Messager functions, that will allow a user to easily accomplish this task through a graphical user interface..
