We present a whole integrated model of collaborative virtual environment for training (CVET) focusing on the abstraction of the actors’ nature to define a homogenous collaboration model for users and virtual agents. To do so, we define a complete model of physically simulated autonomous agent able to collaboratively interact and communicate using natural language with real users in such environments. This contribution can be seen as a baseline of reasoning components to consider when building CVET.
