Abstract: When dealing with dynamic large-scale topologies such as those underlying Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Distributed Virtual Environments (DVEs), one inescapably reaches the point where either: a) simulations lack human behaviour and assessment or where b) practical experiments on a small scale do not yield significant results. The restrictions resulting from the separation of simulation and testbed environments hinder a comprehensive assessment and efficient development of adaptive algorithms and techniques for DVEs as they are investigated in our HyperVerse research project. In this paper, we present a hybrid evaluation system designed to combine the advantages of simulations and testbeds. The proposed infrastructure exhibits great flexibility particularly alluring in view of the multitude of potential research in the context of DVEs.
