In this paper, we propose a new approach to a visual grid system by implementing a 3D virtual conference room (VCR). A visual grid can visualize massive data in real time without relying on clients' visualization equipment. However, middleware products for the visual grid systems are not sufficient yet. This is a serious barrier for us to ap ply the visual grid systems to collaborative problem solv ing. In our system, visual grid clients can easily share the images of visualized data, and collaborate interactively for their problem solving on the same images. We show our system's overview and evaluate the feasibility.
