for those who have not participated in this year's ICN conference, I 
would like to draw attention to the very inspiring presentation of Cenk:

This contribution actually works out a link between current IETF 
developments from the IoT Core WG, and all the thoughts and insights we 
have gained from almost 10 years of ICN-IoT research.

Cenk shows how ICN concepts and principles can be deployed today in IP 
networks with existing and emerging protocols - to the benefit of 
performance, reliability, and robustness of the IoT. Even though the 
Core protocols were not meant to be information-centric, they can 
deliver this service. Wow!

I'd like to consider this seminal for the ICNRG in the sense that it 
opens a door: ICN research can now find its way into regular IETF 
protocols and common deployment - without the high hurdle of replacing IP.
