This report contains a set of papers that were presented at the Third International Workshop on Adoption-centric Software Engineering (ACSE). The papers focused on overcoming barriers to adopting research tools. Such barriers include the user's lack of familiarity with the tools, the mismatch between the tools and the users' cognitive models, a lack of interface maturity, limited tool scalability, poor interoperability and limited support for complex software engineering development tasks. The workshop papers explored innovative approaches to the adoption of software engineering tools and practices in particular by embedding them with middleware products and other commonly available commercial products.
