The advancement in the information and communication (ICT) technologies have resulted in the improvement of number of time consuming tasks and activities. These tasks have been automated with the help of advance information and communication (ICT) technologies. The artificial intelligence and multi-agents systems have made possible to automate number of tasks which required human decisions and complex calculations. This paper presents a system design approach for the development of Multi Agent Meeting Scheduling Simulation model and the VOMAS framework have being utilized for the verification and validation (V&V) of this simulation Model. The verification and validation (V&V) of the Meeting simulation model is based on VOMAS techniques. Our technique will permit the validation of agent based simulations using (VOMAS) a Virtual Overlay Multi-agent System. This overlay multi-agent system can comprise various types of agents, which form an overlay on top of the agent based simulation model that needs to be validated. To demonstrate the effectiveness of Multi agent meeting scheduling system and VOMAS approach, the research have shown its broad applicability in a wide variety of simulation models ranging from social sciences to computer networks in spatial and non-spatial conceptual models.
