Stay tuned! This page is regularly updated and provides information on materials and events relevant to early-adopters of the LarKC technology!
Who are Early Adopters?
The objective of the Early Adopters is to create a community that get early access to project infrastructure and will be invited to experiment with plug-ins on the LarKC platform. This will both verify the generality of the plug-in interfaces and encourage take-up of the project results. The more this community grows the greater the opportunity for LarKC results to be reused in other initiatives. Early adopters are important to us: they provide a fundamental role in providing feedback about our work and drive our next research direction.

Events for Early Adopters
To foster the creation of the early adopters community, tutorials have been organized in the last number of months with the aim of showing results to interested researchers and giving them the chance to get in direct contact with LarKC technology and the key developers behind it. More tutorials along with LarKC workshops for sharing and discussing experiences with using the LarKC platform will be organized in the future.
The first early adopters tutorial was held in conjunction with ESWC 2009 in Crete, Greece on the 1st of June 2009. This was the first opportunity for the research community to get their hands on LarKC results and the event was well attended.
The second early adopters tutorial was held in conjunction with ISWC 2009 in Washington DC, USA on the 25th of October 2009. This tutorial enabled participants from the US to the get access to early research results and technologies from the LarKC project.
The third early adopters tutorial will be held in conjunction with ESWC 2010 in Crete, Greece on the 30th of May 2010. This tutorial will enable participants to the get access to early research results and technologies from the LarKC project.
The fourth early adopters tutorial was held in conjunction with the LarKC project meeting on the 13th November 2010 in the Gongda Jianguo Hotel, Beijing University of Technology, Beijing, China. This tutorial enables participants to the get access to early research results and technologies from the LarKC project, and mainly focuses on Chinese Semantic Web researchers, developers, and companies.
The LarKC Pharma Workshop will take place on April 19th and 20th in Stuttgart. The workshop builds on previous tutorials and is customized for drug development/discovery participants. Having completed this workshop, participants will have the basic skills required to run their own experiments on the LarKC platform and develop their own plug-ins for the LarKC platform.
