All manuscript submitted to the proceedings of WPCF 2014 are cordially invited to the online-only, free to read and free of charge journal JCEGI, to its first volume on Special Topics in High Energy Physics. Check the News for details.

Ten years ago a workshop on particle correlations and femtoscopy was convened to establish a regular series of workshops, initially following the Quark Matter conferences, where a critical and thorough analysis of latest results on Bose-Einstein/HBT correlations and other femtoscopic methods will be possible. The jubilee Xth Workshop on Particle Correlations and Femtoscopy (WPCF-2014) will be held from August 25 to 29, 2014, at Károly Róbert College in Gyöngyös, Hungary. WPCF-2014 continues the tradition of bringing together experts in the experimental and theoretical physics of measuring source shapes and sizes in high energy collisions. We also intend to open this series of meetings towards new results in related topics like diffraction in high energy physics, flow, ridge correlations, femtoscopic methods in low and intermediate energy heavy ion physics as well as outreach. Students without a PhD are particularly encouraged to attend and their registration and participation fee is reduced.

In addition to the usual WPCF topics, which are broadly speaking theory, experiment and methods in femtoscopy, more specifically

  • Femtoscopy in e+e-, e-A, pp, AB collisions
  • Identical particle correlations
  • Non-identical particle correlations
  • Gaussian vs non-Gaussian correlations
  • Coherence and chaos
  • Recent results from RHIC, LHC, J-PARC
  • Correlations and fluctuations

We also plan to have detailed discussions on recent results from Quark Matter 2014,
and to add some local flavours:

  • Diffraction at LHC
  • Outreach

and we encourage participants to register as soon as reasonably possible and to propose the title of their own talks.

Looking forward to an inspiring and useful, anniversary meeting, and hope to see you in Hungary soon,
