Abstract

The eMinerals Virtual Organisation consists of a consortium of individuals affiliated to geographically distributed academic institutions. Collaborative tools are essential in order to facilitate cooperative work within this Virtual Organisation. The Access Grid Toolkit has been widely adopted for this purpose, delivering high quality group-to-group video and audio conferencing. We briefly mention this technology and describe the development of a Multicast Application Sharing Tool designed specifically for this environment.
