    Default at the meeting/in the meeting

    Right now, I am in the meeting, please don't disturb me.

    The both `in the meeting' and `in the meeting' do not make any difference as to meaning, I think.

    Could you help me on this?

    Default Re: at the meeting/in the meeting

    I would say "in a meeting."

    If there were a multi-day meeting being held off-site, you could be "at the meeting." But to just mean that you are in a conference room for an hour or so, say "in."

    (American English perspective.)
