Abstract. We introduce autonomous gossiping (A/G), a new genre
epidemic algorithm for selective dissemination of information in contrast
to previous usage of epidemic algorithms which flood the whole network.
A/G is a paradigm which suits well in a mobile ad-hoc networking
(MANET) environment because it does not require any infrastructure
or middleware like multicast tree and (un)subscription maintenance for
publish/subscribe, but uses ecological and economic principles in a self-
organizing manner in order to achieve any arbitrary selectivity (flexible
casting). The trade-off of using a stateless self-organizing mechanism
like A/G is that it does not guarantee completeness deterministically
as is one of the original objectives of alternate selective dissemination
