The development of intelligent virtual environments is a demanding process due to their increased complexity and the need for integration of diverse technologies. Substantial efforts are made to address the issue in a targeted fashion, in terms of virtual space representation, virtual object semantics and functionality, and intelligent virtual agent perception and action. However, the field lacks methodologies that address the issue uniformly and provide for reusability, maintainability and extendibility. In this paper we present an overview of our own efforts in that direction, which build upon the REVE representation for intelligent virtual environments and the REVE platform.
