Estes simpósios reúnem especialistas que trabalham na área das línguas e ciências da computação. Até agora, três desses eventos tiveram lugar:
- III International Symposium on Multilingualism in Cyberspace (III SIMC), Paris, França, 21-23 novembro 2012
- II Simposio internacional sobre multilingüismo y ciberespacio (II SIMC), Brasília, Brasil, 07-09 novembro 2011
- I International Symposium on Multilingualism in Cyberspace (I SIMC), Barcelona, Espanha, 29-30 de setembro 2009
The first two editions of SIMC (Barcelona, 2009; Brasilia, 2011) had provided a space for joint discussions among specialists in order to identify the key points for debating multilingualism in cyberspace, to review the state of the art in this area, to create synergies, and to allow the progress of the discussions being held in emerging fields.
These first two meetings have brought together some of the partners of the recently formed consortium Dilinet, intended to lead an ambitious European project with a global perspective where the creation of indicators on linguistic diversity is the central core. They also pinpointed the issues that has been developed in Net.lang, the book already mentioned at the beginning of this document, and fed the agenda of the World Summit on Multilingualism that Maaya is currently proposing to UNESCO.
