This publication describes a system for improving the efficiency of meetings by automatically matching meetings with the most appropriate meeting room. To perform this matching, the system can calculate a cost for each meeting/room pairing. The system can utilize an integer programming model to evaluate a plurality of configurations, each configuration containing a different combination of meeting/room pairings. The configurations can be scored, and the system can select the configuration with the lowest total cost. The system then updates any meeting with a changed room.
