We consider the task of scheduling a conference based on incomplete data about available resource and scheduling constraints, and describe a procedure for automated elicitation of additional data. This procedure is part of an interactive system for scheduling under uncertainty, which identifies critical missing data, generates related questions to the human administrator, and uses answers to improve the schedule.
