Abstract

A unique method is defined for identification, notification, resolution, and synchronization of event conflicts that could occur due to context based dependencies across heterogeneous mobile user communities. An EVENT CONFLICT RESOLUTION Algorithm is designed upon web based services model that gathers calendar events from heterogeneous user calendars, filter relevant contacts for each event, and creates inter-dependent chain of events for generating predictions and thus identifying event conflicts. The algorithm issues notifications to all affected contacts and gathers user actions for propagating updated calendar data across all relevant contacts.
