When you book a meeting room, but no one shows up in it when it's time for the meeting, it's called a ghost meeting. This problem might happen when the meeting organizer decides to work from home or a different location, and forgets to cancel the room booking. It could also occur when someone switches jobs or goes on extended leave and their booked meeting series linger and keep meeting rooms booked when no one is there.
