This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third Italian Conference on Algorithms and Complexity, CIAC'97, held in Rome, Italy in March 1997.
The 25 revised full papers included in the volume were carefully selected from a total of 74 submissions; also included is an invited paper and an invited abstract. All in all, the papers present an interesting snapshot of current research activities and recent results in theory and applications of sequential, distributed, and parallel algorithms, data structures, and computational complexity.
