Multi-user multimedia editing ought to be supported by different means. Besides technical means required for editing a given document by several users simultaneously, there is also a demand for communication mechanisms which are able to support the synchronization of the users. The system presented in this paper does not only offer multi-user multimedia editing capabilities but also provides a shared workspace and an environment for communication both via terminals and via telephone. The shared workspace is a concept which allows the members of a conference to share documents and other data. Telephone communications enable members of a collaborative editing session to have conference connections and to dynamically form subgroups.
