  abstract =     "The quality of a heuristic optimization algorithm is
                 strongly dependent on its parameter values. Finding the
                 optimal parameter values is a laborious task which
                 requires expertise and knowledge about the algorithm,
                 its parameters and the problem. This paper describes,
                 how the optimization of parameters can be automated by
                 using another optimization algorithm on a meta-level.
                 To demonstrate this, a meta-optimization problem which
                 is algorithm independent and allows any kind of
                 algorithm on the meta- and base-level is implemented
                 for the open source optimization environment
                 HeuristicLab. Experimental results of the optimization
                 of a genetic algorithm for different sets of base-level
                 problems with different complexities are shown.",
