As part of the ICWSM Data Sharing Initiative, ICWSM provides a hosting service for new datasets used by papers published in the proceedings of the annual ICWSM conference. All datasets are released as openly available community resources. Please see the instructions on the registration process in order to gain access to the datasets.
