We propose a new application-level clustering algorithm capable of building an overlay spanning tree among participants of large multicast sessions, without any specific help from the networkrouters. This algorithm is based on a unique definition of zones around nodes and an innovative adaptive cluster size distribution. The proposed method finds application in many context where large-scale overlay trees can be usefull: application-level multicasting, peer-to-peer networks and content distribution networks (among other things).
