The authors study a network structure for efficient information dissemination that leverages location-based real-time applications operating in a distributed system. Gossip-based information dissemination is a promising method for a large-scale system to keep nodes in the network quickly updated with new information. The information dissemination efficiency depends strongly on the underlying network structure, so it is important to analyze how the network structure is optimized to achieve agile information dissemination, especially for time-sensitive applications, e.g., for dynamic pursuit of a moving target that requires frequent information updating.
