The European HPC Infrastructure Workshop Series is the extension of a workshop that was hosted by CSCS in 2008 within the framework of the PRACE Project. Due to the success of the event and continued interest in the topic, it has been hosted annually since that time.

Traditionally, the workshop has been hosted by one of the three founding sites (CEA, CSCS, GCS) but the committee is open to further suggestions. See the section Guidelines for more information if you are interested in hosting a workshop.

Further to the three founding sites, the committee is composed of 3 further persons who are equally deeply involved in infrastructure related questions for HPC.

The organisational committee is governed by an MoU but does not have a legal entity. The workshops are run on a non-profit basis and must recover their costs via registration fees, sponsorship from PRACE as well as from the three founding sites.
