An element $(x_1, \ldots, x_n)\in E^n$ is called a {\em norming point} of $T\in {\mathcal L}_s(^n E)$ if $\|x_1\|=\cdots=\|x_n\|=1$ and
$|T(x_1, \ldots, x_n)|=\|T\|,$ where ${\mathcal L}_s(^n E)$ denotes the space of all symmetric continuous $n$-linear forms on $E.$
For $T\in {\mathcal L}_s(^n E),$ we define $$\mathop{\rm Norm}(T)=\{(x_1, \ldots, x_n)\in E^n: (x_1, \ldots, x_n)~\mbox{is a norming point of}~T\}.$$
$\mathop{\rm Norm}(T)$ is called the {\em norming set} of $T$. We classify $\mathop{\rm Norm}(T)$ for every $T\in {\mathcal L}_s(^2l_{\infty}^2)$.
