Intelligent computing covers a hybrid palette of methods and techniques - rived from classical arti?cial intelligence, computational intelligence, multi-agent systems a.o. Distributed computing studies systems that contain loosely-coupled components running on networked computers and that c- municateandcoordinatetheiractionsbyexchangeofmessages.Theemergent ?eld of intelligent distributed computing is expected to pose special ch- lenges of adaptation and fruitful combination of results of both areas with a great impact on the development of new generation intelligent distributed information systems. Intelligent Distributed Computing - IDC Symposium Series was started as an initiative of research groups from: (i) Systems Research Institute, P- ish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Poland and (ii) Software Engineering Department of the University of Craiova, Craiova, Romania. IDC aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners involved in all aspects of - telligent distributed computing. IDC 2009 was the third event in this series and was hosted by Department of Computer Science, University of Cyprus in Ayia Napa, Cyprus during October 13-14, 2009.
