Abstract. A system and method for scheduling resources includes a memory storage device having a resource data structure stored therein which is configured to store a collection of available resources, time slots for employing the resources, dependencies between the available resources and social map information. A processing system is configured to set up a communication channel between users, between a resource owner and a user or between resource owners to schedule users in the time slots for the available resources. The processing system employs social mapping information of the users or owners to assist in filtering the users and owners and initiating negotiations for the available resources.
