A parallel algorithm for solving meeting schedule problems is presented in this paper where the problem is NP-complete. The proposed system is composed of two maximum neural networks which interact with each other. One is an M x S neural network to assign meetings to available time slots on a timetable where M and S are the number of meetings and the number of time slots, respectively. The other is an M x P neural network to assign persons to the meetings where P is the number of persons. The simulation results show that the state of the system always converges to one of the solutions. Our empirical study shows that the solution quality of the proposed algorithm does not degrade with the problem size.
