Mobile social network (MoSoN) signifies an emerging area in the social computing research built on top of the mobile communications and wireless networking. It allows virtual community formation among like minded users to share data and to organize collaborative social activities at commonly agreed upon places and times. Such an activity scheduling in real-time is non-trivial as it requires tracing multiple users' profiles, preferences, and other spatio-temporal contexts, like location, availability, etc. Inherent conflicts among users regarding choices of places and time slots further complicates unanimous decision making. In this paper, we propose an autonomic system for activity scheduling in MoSoN communities. Our system allows flexible activity proposition while efficiently handling the user conflicts. As evident from our simulation results and analysis, our system can schedule multiple simultaneous activities in real-time while incurring low message and time cost.
