Titel: The Chemical Metaphor as a Paradigm for
Modelling Biological, Social, and Organic
Computing Systems
All known life forms process information on a bio-molecular level. Examples are: signal processing in
bacteria (e.g., chemotaxis), gene expression and morphogenesis, defence coordination and adapta-
tion in the immune system, or broadcasting information by the endocrine system. Moreover, various
other processes like population dynamics and communication in social systems can be described by
chemical-like models. These "chemical-like" systems are known to be robust, self-organizing, adap-
tive, decentralized, asynchronous, fault-tolerant, and evolvable. Because their behaviour emerges out
of an orchestrated interplay of many decentralized relatively simple components (called molecules),
