  abstract =     "We explore a homoeostatic approach to program
                 execution in computer systems: the 'concentration' of
                 computation services is regulated according to their
                 fitness. The goal is to obtain a self-healing effect so
                 that the system can resist harmful mutations that could
                 happen during on-line evolution. We present a model in
                 which alternative program variants are stored in a
                 repository representing the organism's 'genotype'.
                 Positive feedback signals allow code in the repository
                 to be expressed (in analogy to gene expression in
                 biology), meaning that it is injected into a reaction
                 vessel (execution environment) where it is executed and
                 evaluated. Since execution is equivalent to a chemical
                 reaction, the program is consumed in the process,
                 therefore needs more feedback in order to be
                 re-expressed. This leads to services that constantly
                 regulate themselves to a stable condition given by the
                 fitness feedback received from the users or the
                 environment. We present initial experiments using this
                 model, implemented using a chemical computing
