    It is widely recognized that much management time and effort is expended in attending meetings and being such a costly resource it is important that the decision to attend a meeting is not taken lightly. Because of this many busy executives are rejecting face-to-face meetings in favour of virtual meetings involving both high and low complexity technological solutions. This paper proposes an agent based, ontology driven meeting assistant designed to support virtual meetings. Situated on a graph database and operating over a peer-to-peer network the ontology will provide the basic vocabulary for the meeting and the semantics required to achieve a dialogue between the agents and the human interface used by the meeting assistant.
