Abstract : Performing a large scale job always involves some teamwork. Therefore, for several years, there has been a growing need regarding computer assistance for this kind of collaborative task. The most complete solutions existing today are collaborative virtual environments (CVE). However, the use of these tools is still uncommon because of the "distant" aspect of the collaboration in CVEs: In a real use case, co-workers are mostly located in the same place. Such a situation is called "colocation". Therefore, large companies choose another working method called "war room": a physical space allowing simultaneous and non-linear work using multiple working surfaces. This thesis aims at providing a hardware and software platform dedicated to collocated collaboration and focused on project review activities. After having analyzed the notion of space, and observed socio-cognitive behavior of collocated coworkers, we present a computer-aided platform inspired from war rooms. This work emphasizes on the users' competence diversity by implementing a paradigm called "channels". These channels offer multiple heterogeneous representations of virtual objects in the war room. This work is completed by the definition of a method for changing a classical CVE platform (SPIN|3D) into a computer-supported war room. This transformation involves notably the insertion of several abstraction levels for data; thanks to software architecture we call MnVO. The resulting platform is finally used for two prototypes: The first one provides distributed collaboration activity upon a virtual vehicle. The second one relies on the channels technology and provides an urbanism project review scenario.
