This year's proceedings saw the inclusion of a considerable number of extended contributions designed to outline both the status of and outstanding problems in many topics. Further contributions are grouped into the generation and characterization of classes of materials. Studies on characterization of pristine materials are grouped under one heading, reflecting the coming of age of fullerene chemistry. Interest in the variety of intercalation compounds continues, but the range of phenomena observable in, for example, A1C60 and TDAE complexes is sufficient to merit independent consideration of these species. The proceedings also contains subsections dedicated to other intercalated compounds as well as nanotubes and nanoparticles, reflecting the continued interest in these materials. As was the case last year, the volume is introduced by a decription of the origins and essence of fullerene research, illustrating the diversity and interdisciplinarity of the field, and is summarized by an assessment of the applications potential of the materials and phenomena which have already evolved from the activities of the past ten years.
