+Our paper entitled [ Reproducible and 
User-Controlled Software Environments in HPC with Guix] was accepted for 
[ RepPar], a workshop on reproducibility in parallel 
+  Support teams of high-performance computing (HPC) systems often find 
themselves between a rock and a hard place: on one hand, they understandably 
administrate these large systems in a conservative way, but on the other hand, 
they try to satisfy their users by deploying up-to-date tool chains as well as 
libraries and scientific software. HPC system users often have no guarantee 
that they will be able to reproduce results at a later point in time, even on 
the same system—software may hav [...]
+The paper can be thought of as a followup to the recent 
[ experience report] by 
Ricardo Wurmus.
+We believe package management and reproducibility are key topics for HPC 
research.  We are glad to have this opportunity to discuss the subject with 
researchers of the field.
+== About GNU Guix ==
+[ GNU Guix] is a functional package manager 
for the GNU system.  The Guix System Distribution or GuixSD is an advanced 
distribution of the GNU system that relies on GNU Guix and 
[ respects 
the user's freedom].
+In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports 
transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management, 
per-user profiles, and garbage collection.  Guix uses low-level mechanisms from 
the Nix package manager, except that packages are defined as native 
[ Guile] modules, using extensions to the 
[ Scheme] language.  GuixSD offers a declarative approach to 
operating system configuration management, and is  [...]
+GuixSD can be used on an i686 or x86_64 machine.  It is also possible to use 
Guix on top of an already installed GNU/Linux system, including on mips64el and
