The 2025 IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2025) will be held 12-16 May, 2025, in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. First organized in 1988, NOMS 2025 follows the 37-year tradition of NOMS and IM as the IEEE Communications Society's primary forum for technical exchange on network and service management, focusing on research, development, integration, standards, service provisioning, and user communities. NOMS 2025 seeks contributions presenting recent developments and technical solutions for dealing with the management of various networks and services. NOMS 2025 program will be under the theme of Managing the Wave to Global Connectivity and will feature a variety of sessions, including keynotes, tutorials as well as technical, experience, demo, poster, panel, and dissertation sessions.
