Meeting Scheduling (MS) is an important real world-problem that is defined by the process of scheduling meetings while taking into account several constraints related to the availability and preferences of the users. The main contribution of this paper is to propose a new approach based on the DRAC model (distributed reinforcement of arc consistency) to solve the MS problem. A simplified version of this approach was implemented and compared with an approach of the state of the art. The experimental results show that our approach is scalable.
