Abstract : The term "avatar" refers to the representation of users in a virtual world, in the case where they are immersed in Virtual Reality with a Head-Mounted Display and therefore cannot see their own body. Avatars have now become a major requirement in immersive virtual reality applications, increasing the need to better understand and identify the factors that influence users’ sense of embodiment towards their avatar. In this thesis, we defined three axes of research to explore the influence of several factors on the sense of embodiment, based on a categorization that did not only consider factors related to the avatar, but also factors related to the virtual environment and the user. In the first part, we have studied the influence of shared virtual environments on the sense of embodiment, in a study where users performed a task together in the same virtual environment, and in another experiment in which users even shared the control of the same avatar. In a second part, we explored interrelations within avatar-related factors influencing the sense of embodiment, using a new methodological approach with a subjective matching technique. Finally, in a third part, we investigated the influence of users’ individual differences on the sense of embodiment.
