  abstract =     "This paper shows how ontogenetic program- ming, an
                 enhancement to the genetic programming methodology,
                 allows for the automatic generation of adaptive
                 programs. Programs produced by ontogenetic programming
                 may include calls to self-modification operators. By
                 permitting runtime program self-modification, these
                 operators allow evolved programs to further adapt to
                 their environments. In this paper the ontogenetic
                 programming methodology is described and two examples
                 of its use are presented, one for binary sequence
                 prediction and the other for action selection in a
                 virtual world. In both cases the inclusion of
                 self-modification operators has a clear positive impact
                 on the ability of genetic programming to produce
                 successful programs.",
