Usage questions about boost should go to the boost-help mailing list.

You need to make fun a template over the function parameter. The return
type can be derived using Boost's result_of protocol. I'm not 100% sure
about the details, but it should be something like

template <typename Fn>
typename boost::result_of<Fn>::type run_at(ptime at, Fn fn);
