This paper presents a session engine for synchronous collaborative environments and settings. Communication is a key aspect in both traditional and computer supported group meetings. Our layered engine approach provides the flexibility needed to provide user-friendly connection procedures, session establishment tasks, user access control to sessions and message distribution mechanisms in sessions. We applied the engine in a real-world scenario and testing indicates this approach can find broader applications in other domains.
