Publish/Subscribe architectures have been widely studied and applied in wired networks. However, their deployment on mobile ad hoc networks still presents a lot of challenges. This work proposes and analyzes a solution for such networks using the nodes' movement to disseminate publications to the whole network with few transmissions. Our proposal does not build dissemination trees which incur in a high cost to keep them updated due to constant changes in the topology, and does not even require beacons exchanges in order to sustain a neighborhood table. Our experiments show that we are able to achieve better results than a gossip-based algorithm and other solutions found in the literature.
