+Guix will be present on a few venues in the coming weeks:
+  1. On October 23rd, I (Ludovic Courtès) will be at
+     [GPCE](,
+     an academic conference co-located with SPLASH in Vancouver, Canada.
+     I will present the paper [_Code Staging in
+     GNU Guix_](, which discusses
+     the motivation for and genesis of
+     as well as recent improvements.  It’s an honor to be presenting
+     before an audience of experts in the field!
+  2. Christopher Baines will be at [freenode
+     #live]( in Bristol, UK, among well-known
+     free software activists from a variety of organizations and
+     projects.  Christopher will give a talk on October 29th to give an
+     overview of Guix and GuixSD.
+  3. On October 31st, Ricardo Wurmus, Jan Nieuwenhuizen, and possibly
+     more Guix hackers will join a dozen free software projects at the
+     [third Reproducible Build
+     Summit]( in
+     Berlin, Germany.  As in
+     [previous](/software/guix/news/reproducible-build-summit-2nd-edition.html)

+     longer-term vision with our fellow hackers!
+If you’re around in Vancouver, Bristol, or Berlin, let’s get in touch!
+#### About GNU Guix
+[GNU Guix]( is a transactional 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
+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 highly customizable and hackable.
+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, armv7, and aarch64.
