The 3rd International Conference on Particle Physics and Astrophysics (ICPPA-2017) was held in Moscow, Russia, from 2 to 5 October 2017. The conference was organized by the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI. The aim of the conference is to promote contacts between scientists working on experimental and theoretical aspects of nuclear, particle and astroparticle physics and cosmology. This volume includes papers from the sections "Nuclear Physics" and "Relativistic Heavy-ion collisions". The physics of relativistic heavy-ion collisions was covered by the talks from the existing and proposed heavy-ion physics experiments. Recent experimental and theoretical developments in a field of relativistic heavy-ion collisions were discussed. The highlights by main running experiments at RHIC (STAR, PHENIX) and the LHC (ALICE,ATLAS) were complemented by status reports on preparation of the future heavy-ion experiments at FAIR and NICA facilities. The section "Nuclear Physics" included reports on the main trends of modern researches. Most of the reports belonged to the studies of exotic nuclei and the search for new states, rare decays and processes. Prospects of future studies on modern accelerator complexes were discussed.
