Consistent Calendar Constructor (ACS,CS)
Within the Department staff use a range of diary systems, ranging between Psion organisers and Sun calendar managers. It would be nice if all electronic diary formats were interchangeable, especially for the secretarial staff who sometimes have to set up meetings between people who use different tools.
The objective of this project is to investigate the possibility of converting between various electronic diary formats, such as Sun calendar manager and Microsoft Schedule (and/or Outlook). Simple file conversion would be a good start, but ultimately synchronization might be even better. A significant part of the work is likely to involve locating and understanding definitions of the various file formats used by these tools.
