Interesting but extremely complex for a simple problem.

Assuming you sync your calendars to the application, when an event is  
marked as "quiet" or semantically, looks like a meeting, turn the  
phone to vibrate. When the event's specified end time elapses, return  
to the previous ring-state.

Use the data the user already has provided.

My 2 cents minus sales tax :)
