This volume presents the proceedings of the third workshop on Information Systems and Artificial Intelligence, organized by the German Computer Science Society. The 11 invited contributions by well known researchers and developers working in the fields of databases and knowledge representation systems are centered around the topic of management and processing of complex data structures; they give a representative snapshot of the state-of-the-art in this fruitful interdisciplinary research area important for further progress in both, information systems and artificial intelligence. Most of the papers stress the demands for new or extended formalisms and their deductive capabilities, including an analysis of their formal properties for managing complex structures.
