Software systems have evolved to the age of Artificial Intelligence (AI), consisting of independent autonomous agents interacting with each other in dynamic and unpredictable environments. In this kind of environment it is often very difficult to predict all the interactions between the agents. Hence verification of an interaction between multiple agents has become a key research area in AI. In this paper the authors model and verify an Automatic Meeting Scheduling (AMS) problem having multiple agent communication. The AMS problem helps one to emulate a real life scenario where multiple agents can argue over the defined constraints. A weighted strength based argumentation scheme is proposed, where each argument is weighed against each other to determine the strongest evidence.
