<p><b>Abstract</b>—Ideally, virtual worlds should be dynamic, mutable, and complex in order to be attractive for immersed users. As such worlds can be designed easily by rewriting techniques, we propose a distributed Virtual Reality (VR) system that is based on an interactive animation system using a rewriting technique for geometric and behavioral modeling. The emphasis is on concepts and extensions for the integration of user immersion, user interaction, and networking into a rewriting-based animation system. Finally, the modeling of a ball game with two immersed users, as well as a virtual park, serve as case studies to illustrate the proposed concepts and extensions.</p>
