This is the 57th issue of the SCYON newsletter. It contains 20 abstracts from refereed publications and an announcement for the Small Stellar Systems conference in Tuscany in June 2013. Todays issue is also the last issue with me as main editor. I would like to thank Ernst Paunzen for his great help in putting the issues together, sometimes at short notice. Thomas Puzia will take over editing the newsletter from me, starting with the next issue.
As usual, we would like to thank all who sent us their contributions.
