Abstract

In this paper we present Studierstube Workspace, an application framework which supports multiple users, multiple applications and multiple 3D and 2D interaction contexts in an augmented environment. We develop a design concept for collaborative working environments in virtual reality, especially the concept of multi-user aware applications and show how our implementation fits into this concept. Implementation details and appli-cation samples conclude the paper.
