Information Centric Networking (ICN) and Software Defined Networking (SDN) have been gaining quite a bit of traction in the research community and the industries. This tutorial will aim to cover a wide range of features and
functionalities offered by both ICN and SDN by looking at it from an application point of view. Various key applications will be used to derive the requirements and discuss various design choices. The tutorial will also provide hands on experience of using these protocols, cover various research challenges and attempt to discuss the synergies and differences between ICN and SDN.
