session control

the mechanism for mediating which people and which objects can belong to a given interactive session.

Important issues are the means by which users enter and leave a session, how a session is started and ended, and what resources are available to the session. An example would be controlling access to a chat room — for instance, only people invited by a moderator might be able to enter a chat room, or a chat room might be limited to 15 people, and entry would be allowed to anyone when less than 15 people were there and entry denied when the room was filled.
