CSCW applications are difficult to design and to implement. In this poster, we present an environment which allows to rapidly create a simulation of a collaborative application and to show it to an user. This environment is based on a high level description language which describes the application and on a simulator which allows to interpret this description according to predefined scenarios. The user can observe the dynamic behaviour of the application as would be seen by one of the participants. He may then rapidly provide comments and suggestions to improve the current design. This environment has been implemented and is currently being tested.
