Scientific research is often multidisciplinary in nature and hence large projects are frequently collaborative with participants from several separate re- search centres. Rather than being restricted to infrequent dissemination of results and meetings a framework is described for embedding scientific computing ap- plications within a collaborative problem solving environment. This allows users to combine their expertise in an interactive visual environment. Separate users can collaboratively steer and visualize data from a numerical simulation by em- bedding the simulation within the IRIS Explorer visualization system. By making use of this system the user has access to the COVISA toolkit which facilitates col- laboration between separate users of IRIS Explorer. The flexibility of this system makes it straightforward to visualize and control as many aspects of the solution process as are desired.
