The broadcast of a message in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks requires its retransmission by multiple devices, consuming both bandwidth and power. The goal of broadcast algorithms is to select the most adequate nodes to retransmit so that the cost of the operation is reduced. Pampa is a broadcast algorithm that has been shown to perform well when the node distribution is uniform. This position paper identifies and discusses some cases where the performance of Pampa can be improved and presents the research directions that will be pursued to address them.
