Acknowledgments................................................145 10 Authors' and Chairs' Addresses................................146 11 Full Copyright Statement......................................148 The use of calendaring and scheduling has grown considerably in the last decade.Enterprise and inter-enterprise business has become dependent on rapid scheduling of events and actions using this information technology.

Status of this Memo This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements.Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state and status of this protocol. Copyright Notice Copyright (C) The Internet Society (1998). Abstract There is a clear need to provide and deploy interoperable calendaring and scheduling services for the Internet.Current group scheduling and Personal Information Management (PIM) products are being extended for use across the Internet, today, in proprietary ways.This memo has been defined to provide the definition of a common format for openly exchanging calendaring and scheduling information across the Internet.This memo is formatted as a registration for a MIME media type per [RFC 2048].

However, the format in this memo is equally applicable for use outside of a MIME message content type. This string would label a media type containing calendaring and scheduling information encoded as text characters formatted in a manner outlined below.This MIME media type provides a standard content type for capturing calendar event, to-do and journal entry information.It also can be used to convey free/busy time information.The content type is suitable as a MIME message entity that can be transferred over MIME based email systems, using HTTP or some other Internet transport.In addition, the content type is useful as an object for interactions between desktop applications using the operating system clipboard, drag/drop or file systems capabilities.This memo is based on the earlier work of the v Calendar specification for the exchange of personal calendaring and scheduling information.
