View publication


Contrary to the increasingly popularity of one-on-one interactions between subscribers of on-line services and the services they access, business transactions usually involve some sort of multi-party collaboration and interaction. Hence, for business oriented on-line services, multimedia versions of office environments and meeting-rooms need to be developed on desktop computers. These business environment recreations would allow people to collaborate remotely in virtual office surroundings existing only on their desktops and to meet and conduct business with their colleagues, peers, and business associates on-line.
