The third pillar of the VI-HPS activities is a set of symposia with a technical program. These symposia are usually embedded in an HPC-related conference program.
- ESPT workshops on extreme-scale programming tools, held in conjunction with the SC (Supercomputing) conference series since 2012.
- PROPER workshops on productivity and performance tools, held in conjunction with the Euro-Par conference series between 2008 and 2014.
Other events include BoF and workshop sessions at other conferences as well as some special events.
