General topics include synthesis and technology, physical properties, chemistry of carbon nanostructures as well as their main applications for industry, biology and medicine.Progress in modern nanotechnologies requires development of new, and refinement of already available methods of diagnostics. This is why we also arrange the conference school for young scientists "Diagnostics of Carbon Nanostructures" which will be held in the course of the ACNS'2013 on July 3, 2013. Based on experience of the previous conference, the estimated number of the participants of the ACN'2013 will exceed 300, and will include both of those from Russia as well as Europe, Japan, USA, and other countries. In spite of the short history, the conference has its own traditions.The science on nanocarbons is radically interdisciplinary in nature. Physics, chemistry, mathematics, astronomy, and medicine represent an incomplete list of fields dealing with the research of fullerenes, nanotubes, nanodiamonds and graphene. The discussion of nanocarbon applications is one of the traditions of the conference. The Sponsors and the Organizing Committee have been trying to help and promote young participants. The Program committee has arranged a special award for young scientists for best presentation. St Petersburg is both a scientific and a cultural center. It is a beautiful city designed and built by Russian and Western architects. It is often called "the Venice of the North". As usual along with the Scientific Session, a Social Program is planned. The organizers will arrange a sightseeing program to introduce St Petersburg to the guests and accompanying persons. The ACNS'2013 will be held in the period of "white" nights, when the city looks especially beautiful. The Organizers are pleased to welcome members of the world nanocarbon community to St Petersburg. We are looking forward to seeing all of you in the July 2013 during white nights in St Petersburg.
