Nowadays, Collaborative Virtual Environments offer new working methods allowing for the association of several experts in the same problem-solving process. These new platforms have the potential to improve the processing of complex environments with large dataflow and requiring different skills. This article proposes the investigation of a synchronous and colocated approach for a molecular design task. The aim of this research is to highlight the role and the contribution of Collaborative Virtual Environments for the improvement of complex tasks fulfillment.
