Summary form only given. Delay-Tolerant Networking and Information-Centric Networking represent two new approaches to networking that have been proposed by the research community over the last few years. DTN has explored methods to interconnect networks with various naming, routing and delivery semantics with store-carry-forward delay-tolerant operations, while several ICN-related projects are exploring the naming of data objects instead of nodes, in-network caching and routing, and support for a form of delay-tolerance as a byproduct. In this talk I will cover the basic goals and results of each style of networking, and highlight common lessons learned that contrast the benefits of these approaches with the current IP-based Internet architecture.
