In this paper, we present an interaction model and architecture for the construction of Collaborative Virtual Worlds (CVW) over the Internet. By means of a directed graph, the model describes the interaction between the entities that populate the virtual world. The nodes and edges of the graph can be easily mapped to entities (classes and interfaces) of the proposed architecture, reducing the time and effort needed to develop a Distributed Virtual World (DVW). The architecture allows the distribution of processes between clients and server, or otherwise its centralization within a central server.
