SPOCK is currently an invitation-only beta service, which means you must
receive an invitation from SPOCK or a friend to sign up for the service.
Now I am focusing on name disambiguation research. So I want to try spock.
But I have not any invitation. Is there somebody could send me an
invitation? My mail is billlangjun at gmail.com
Thanks a lot~!

The website is rather sparse on information at the moment, so I have
downloaded their (rather large) corpora and had a look.
If anyone is interested in the challenge, my overview might help you
to make a decision better and faster:
Hope it helps,
