In this paper, we introduce six-shot multicast (6Shot), a location-aware multicast algorithm devised for mobile ad hoc networks. Multicast is a one-to-many communication scheme and has largely been studied in such networks. Indeed, this communication primitive can be used as a building block for popular services, such as data streaming or group communication. The particularity of 6Shot is the location- aware routing scheme of its implementation, which offers improved efficiency in terms of message overhead compared to existing algorithms, for a reasonable cost in terms of reliability.
