This paper presents a novel multi-agent architecture for meeting scheduling. The proposed architecture is a new Hybrid Multi-Agent Architecture (HMAA) that generates new heuristics for solving NP hard problems. Moreover, the paper investigates the feasibility of running computationally intensive algorithms on multi-agent architectures while preserving the ability of small agents to run on small devices, including mobile devices. Three experimental groups are conducted in order to test the

Moreover, it has been proved that HMAA preserves small agents' mobility (i.e. the ability to run on small devices) while implementing evolutionary algorithms Index Terms-multiagent, meeting scheduling, heuristic, genetic programm ing.
