Distributed Clustering

One of the important features in a WSN is clustering as it can be highly helpful in data aggregation, distributing policies among nodes and setting controllers, assigning the overlay topology to reduce energy consumption and etc.

I am trying to come up with a distributed protocol for WSNs where we neither have the location information of the nodes or their mutual distances, all we have is the local connectivity for each node in a distributed fashion. I have found some interesting former research in this regard but I am a little puzzled for now! :)
