To fully utilize the social potential of virtual environments, support for seamless and automatic integration of nonverbal communication is essential. In this paper we propose a conceptual and architectural design for a framework, which provides an integrated, flexible environment for the cooperation of heterogeneous modules specialized in different aspects of the acquirement, analysis and presentation of nonverbal communication cues. We propose a semantic framework for the knowledge exchange between these modules, as well as a general purpose architecture for the semantically correct fusion of nonverbal features.
