Abstract: This paper discusses the use of audio spatialisation techniques to complement current developments in Voice-over-IP. The result is to create a shared synthetic audio environment in which Voice-over-IP streams from several participants appear to be spatially located. While the intent is the inter-work with multi-user VRML environments, our proposals build on current Internet multimedia proposals and are independent of the user interface used to navigate a virtual space.
