Techniques are provided herein for ad-hoc meeting reservation, instantiation, and notification based on mobile crowdsourcing. Leveraging mobile crowdsensing, indoor positioning, and geofencing enables gathering details about the mobile users around the "main" meeting room. The geofencing or intrusion prevention system may help gather the information about the users waiting outside the room. The information may further be correlated with the registered participants for the meeting. This information is used to create a heat map based on the location and the proximity of the potential mobile users and the main meeting room. A meeting room in close proximity may be detected to accommodate the overwhelming crowd. In one example, this room is reserved, a copy of the stream is redirected to the room, and the users are directed to the room.
