Collaborative virtual environments

Steve Benford, Chris Greenhalgh, Tom Rodden, James Pycock
2001 Communications of the ACM  
Due to recent technology advancements, collaborative virtual environments (CVEs) where users can interact and collaborate via avatars in 3D worlds have become more and more common in home and professional  ...  We show that current CVEs can be seen as integrated environments that serve many (though not all) of the functions of traditional CSCW systems.  ...  So, collaborative virtual environments might currently have their tipping point from few specialist users to massive distribution and usage.  ...
