We are proud to introduce the proceedings of the Third International Sym- sium on Intelligence Computation and Applications (ISICA 2008) held at the China UniversityofGeosciences(Wuhan), China,during December 19–21,2008. ISICA 2008 successfully attracted nearly 700 submissions. Through rigorous - views, 93 high-quality papers were included in the proceedings of ISICA 2008. ISICA conferences are one of the ?rst series of internationalconferences on c- putational intelligence that combine elements of learning, adaptation, evolution and fuzzy logic to create programs as alternative solutions to arti?cial intel- gence. The proceedings of ISICA conferences have a number of special features including uniqueness, novelty, success, and broadness of scope. The proceedings ofISICA conferences havebeen acceptedin the Index to Scienti?c andTechnical Proceedings (ISTP), while the ISICA 2007 proceedings have also been indexed by Engineering Information (EI). Following the success of ISICA 2005 and ISICA 2007, ISICA 2008 made good progress on analyzing and processing massive real-time data by compu- tional intelligence. ISICA 2008 featured the most up-to-date research in c- putational intelligence, evolutionary computation, evolutionary multi-objective and dynamic optimization,evolutionarylearning systems, neuralnetworks,cl- si?cation and recognition, bioinformatics and bioengineering, evolutionary data mining and knowledge discovery, intelligent GIS and control, theory of int- ligent computation, combinational and numerical optimization, and real-world applications. ISICA 2008 provided a venue to foster technical exchanges, renew everlasting friendships, and establish new connections.
