Multiparty multimedia conferencing has become increasingly interesting for both educational and commercial uses. One major problem lies in the fact that the realisation of multiparty connections is associated with an immense effort, particularly including the selection of the common basis software for the conference and the underlying hardware. One way to cope with these disadvantages and set up group working across the Internet is using the World Wide Web. The Java application, World Wide Conference (WWC), will pursue this concept and use World Wide Web as a basis for collaboration and joint editing of documents. This paper describes the design and the initial implementation considerations of the WWC application.
