The CHEOPS Science Workshop #3 seeks to bring together a large community of researchers interested in the preparation and exploitation of the CHEOPS mission. The meeting is open to anyone. CHEOPS will be the first mission dedicated to search for transits by means of ultrahigh precision photometry on bright stars already known to host planets. The launch is planned in late 2017. Participants are invited to proposed contributed talks on all scientific aspects relevant for CHEOPS including synergies with other facilities. The workshop will be held in central Madrid, Spain,  in June 17-19, 2015, very close to cultural heart of the city, at the headquarters of the Spanish Centre for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI).  The program envisages invited talks, oral contributions and posters. There will be time for discussions.
