The provision of awareness on the status of cooperative work is an essential prerequisite for the successful application of groupware systems. This paper describes NESSIE, an application-independent awareness infrastructure that is based on Internet technologies. After outlining the system architecture, we illustrate how different presentation methods can be used to enhance a user's physical working environment by awareness displays. Special attention is paid to the integration of NESSIE with a multi-user 3D environment to create shared awareness spaces. These spaces illustrate the activities of a cooperative environment in a symbolic way to provide a quick and intuitive impression of the current workgroup's situation to the user
