+GNU Guix will be present at [FOSDEM]( in the
+coming days with a couple of talks:
+  - [_The many ways of using Guix
+    packages_]( on
+    Saturday afternoon, in the “package management” track, will be _a
+    guide to which ways might suit you_, by Christopher Baines.
+  - On Sunday morning, in the “high-performance computing” track, I will
+    give a talk entitled [_Tying software deployment to scientific
+    workflows_](
+    I will explain how Guix can be thought of as a programming language
+    extension that can be used to _make software deployment a
+    first-class citizen_, as illustrated by the [Guix Workflow
+    Language](, and how this fits with [our vision for
+    HPC](
+We are also organizing a *one-day Guix workshop* where contributors and
+enthusiasts will meet, thanks to the efforts of Manolis Ragkousis and
+Pjotr Prins.  The workshop takes place on Friday Feb. 2nd at the
+Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICAB) in Brussels.  The morning will be
+dedicated to talks—among other things, we are happy to welcome Eelco
+Dolstra, the founder of [Nix](, without which
+Guix would not exist today.  The afternoon will be a more informal
+discussion and hacking session.
+Attendance to the workshop is free and open to everyone, though you are
+invited to register.  Check out [the workshop’s wiki
+page]( for the
+program, registration, and practical info.  Hope to see you in Brussels!
+#### 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, x86_64 and armv7 machines.  It is also
+possible to use Guix on top of an already installed GNU/Linux system,
+including on mips64el and aarch64.
