Tele-collaboration technology, such as video-conferencing and shared desktop systems, is commonly used to enable communication and data sharing across a group of people in distant locations. This thesis argues that, as of today, linking immersive Virtual Reality (VR) interfaces over a Collaborative Virtual Environment (CVE) provides the closest resemblance of co-location, as remote people and shared objects are brought together within a shared spatial and social context.
