First French-speaking workshop on reproducible software environments

Ludovic Courtès, Konrad Hinsen, Simon Tournier — April 9, 2021

We are organizing the first French-speaking workshop on the reproducibility of software environments for scientists, engineers, and system administrators. The workshop will take place on-line on May 17–18th, 2021 from 09:00 to 12:30 CEST. Stay tuned for more reproducible research events!

Nous avons le plaisir d’annoncer le premier atelier francophone sur la reproductibilité des environnements logiciels, qui aura lieu en ligne les matinées des 17 et 18 mai 2021 — programme et informations pratiques sur la page de l’événement.

Cet atelier fait suite à l’intérêt porté par la communauté francophone du calcul scientifique aux questions de reproductibilité, notamment lors de l’Action Nationale de Formation UST4HPC 2021 et avec la journée reproductibilité de la Société Informatique de France (SIF) qui aura lieu le 10 mai. Elle s’inscrit aussi dans le cadre des activités du groupe Guix-HPC.

Au programme, sept retours d’expériences de scientifiques et de responsables d’administration système sur le déploiement logiciel dans les centres de calcul avec Guix mais aussi Spack ou module, et sur la création de pipelines reproductibles pour la recherche avec Debian, Org-Mode et Guix.

Ces exposés seront suivis d’échanges sur les attentes et propositions de chacun·e, aussi bien du point de vue scientifique qu’en termes d’administration de centre de calcul.

La participation est libre et gratuite mais nous vous invitons toutefois à vous inscrire.

Guix-HPC debut!

Ludovic Courtès, Roel Janssen, Pjotr Prins, Ricardo Wurmus — September 5, 2017

This post marks the debut of Guix-HPC, an effort to optimize GNU Guix for reproducible scientific workflows in high-performance computing (HPC). Guix-HPC is a joint effort between Inria, the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC), and the Utrecht Bioinformatics Center (UBC). Ludovic Courtès, Ricardo Wurmus, Roel Janssen, and Pjotr Prins are driving the effort in each of these institutes, each one focusing specific areas of interest within this overall Guix-HPC effort. Our institutes have in common that they are users of HPC, and that, as scientific research institutes, they have an interest in using reproducible methodologies to carry out their research.
