This paper is about the problem of planning a holiday. We argue that the problem requires different kinds of knowledge for successful solution, and that it often requires previous experience to be taken into account. The domain, we suggest, has the property of sparseness: that is, any realistic agent will have significant gaps in background knowledge and experience, a property that is of considerable interest within Case-Based Reasoning. We then briefly discuss a Case-Based Reasoning program called HOLS that will plan holidays on request. We then argue that holiday planning is often a group activity and discuss concepts from social psychology that are relevant to group problem solving. Following this discussion, we outline a variety of experimental arrangements in which a number of independent Case-Based holiday planning agents cooperate to plan a holiday which is acceptable to all.
