Abstract: This paper explores the evolution of the concept of community in the light of computer mediated immersive virtual environments. The traditional concept of community has become strained it its attempts to capture the evolving virtual community. We believe the concept of the virtual community is of paramount importance and examine the extent to which this is being redefined to cater for it. We examine the management and mediation of such environments and specifically the social process associated with the cohabited users. We advocate the use of multi-agent systems in delivering this functionality.
