Original Abstract

In this paper, we describe our research on distributed virtual
meeting rooms. Starting point is our research on multi-party
interaction, where the interaction may take place in real,
augmented and virtual environments. Moreover, those that
interact may be humans, human-controlled avatars, (semi-)
autonomous agents, mobile robots, etc. In this paper the emphasis
is on connecting meeting environments and transforming
perceived and captured meeting activity into multimedia
representations of that activity, including re-generation of activity
in virtual reality, and making this re-generation perceivable in
different, internet-connected, environments. This re-generation is
useful for on-line meeting assistance, remote meeting
participation and assistance, and for off-line access to meeting
information.
