hoc networking enables novel communication paradigms which require the definition of new frameworks and parameters for quality of service (QoS) support. The relevant QoS requirements are frequentlyantagonist and thus also appropriate tradeoff have to be determined and achieved to fit all of them. As an example, consider the spontaneous networking featured byself-organizing ad hoc networks. Spontaneous networking can happen onlyif neighboring communication nodes discover each other within a short period of time; however, velocityof discoveryis paid in terms of energyconsumption. In this paper we consider the tradeoff between energyefficiencyand responsiveness in the discoveryprocess. More specifically, our objective is to achieve the highest velocityin the discoveryprocess, given that the energyconsumption is lower than a certain threshold, or to minimize the energyconsumption given that specific requirements in terms of the discoveryvelocityare satisfied
