The 36th IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2023) will be held 8-12 May 2023 in Miami FL, USA. First organized in 1988, NOMS 2023 follows the 35 years tradition of NOMS and IM as the primary IEEE Communications Society’s forum for technical exchange on network and service operations and management, focusing on research, development, integration, standards, service provisioning, and user communities. The theme of NOMS 2023 is “Integrated Management Towards Resilient Networks and Services.” NOMS 2023 will offer various types of sessions, including technical, keynote, experience, poster, panel, and dissertation. High quality is assured through a well-qualified Technical Program Committee (TPC) and stringent peer review of paper submissions. Papers can be submitted as full and short technical session papers, experience session papers, and dissertation papers. In addition, we invite proposals for demonstrations, exhibits, panels, tutorials, and workshops.
