Electronic institutions (EIs) have been proposed as a means of regulating open agent societies. EIs define the rules of the game in agent societies by fixing what agents are permitted and forbidden to do and under what circumstances. And yet, there is the need for EIs to adapt their regulations to comply with their goals despite coping with varying populations of self-interested agents. This paper focuses on the extension of EIs with autonomic capabilities to allow them to yield dynamical answer to changing circumstances through the adaptation of their norms and their performative structure.
