In this paper we present Catai (for Concurrent Algorithms and data Types Animation over the Internet), an algorithm animation distributed system. Catai adopts an object-oriented animation approach that allows a programmer with an algorithmic background to transparently and efficiently animate a target algorithm. Multiple users can simultaneously watch and interact with a same animation made with Catai using a light-weighted Java animation client. We believe this to be a good compromise between two different viewpoints: the programmer's perspective, which typically includes the goal of animating efficiently and unobtrusively a given algorithmic code, and the user's perspective, which can benefit from interactive, easy-to-use, distributed and cooperative interfaces.
