IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium
8–12 May 2023 // Miami, FL // USA


The 36th IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2023) will be held on 8-12 May 2023 in Miami, FL/USA. Held in every even-numbered year since 1988 with its sister conference IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM), the 2023 edition is the first ever taking place on an odd-numbered year bringing together the best of both outstanding conferences, a great achievement for the network management community. As the primary IEEE Communications Society’s forum for technical exchange on management of information and communication technology NOMS focuses on research, development, integration, deployment, standards, service provisioning, and user communities.

NOMS 2023 will feature several workshops to further disseminate fine-tuned research that is organized around the main conference theme: Integrated Management Towards Resilient Networks and Services.

IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2023 invites proposals for one-day or half-day workshops, which will be held before or immediately after the main NOMS 2023 technical program. The primary purpose of the NOMS 2023 Workshops is to provide a forum for research, development, integration, deployment, standards, service provisioning, and user communities.

NOMS 2023 Workshops are expected to focus on a range of novel and compelling research avenues complementing or in-depth covering the topics of the main conference, such as and not restricted to, intelligent and hyper-connected environments, virtualization and in general, softwarization of networking technologies, newly emerging and potentially challenging topics on advanced services and applications such as tactile Internet and network twins, converged network operations, management and control, novel concepts and tools (e.g. analytics, intelligence provisioning, graph-based security) for the management and control targeting performance and security issues, seamless, secure services in future Internet also embedding cyber-physical systems such as Industry 4.0 and autonomous vehicles.
