XII Workshop on Particle Correlations and Femtoscopy

12-16 June 2017



The Netherlands


Scientific information and topics

This event follows the tradition of previous editions by bringing together experts and other interested researchers in the field of particle-particle correlations and “femtoscopy” in nuclear and particle physics. The topics covered by the WPCF workshop concern dynamical and thermo-dynamical properties of emitting sources produced in heavy-ion collisions, including links to phase transitions and equation of state properties. Moreover, two- and multi-particle correlation measurements provide tools to reveal the existence of new resonances (both at high and at low energies) and phenomena such as nuclear clusters and molecules and spectroscopic properties of unbound states. The scope of the meeting will include correlation and femtoscopy research at RHIC/LHC energies and at low and intermediate energies as well. Topics:

  • Femtoscopy at RHIC and LHC: links to QGP physics
  • Femtoscopy in A+A, p+p , p+A and e+-e- collisions at relativistic energies
  • Femtoscopy at intermediate energies: links to the EoS of asymmetry nuclear matter
  • Charge fluctuations, correlations and balance functions
  • Fluctuation in initial conditions
  • Collective flow and correlations
  • Resonance decays at RHIC and LHC
  • Resonance decay spectroscopy in low and intermediate energy reactions
  • Chiral magnetic effect and wave, chiral vortical effect
  • New methods and facilities


These topics will be covered with invited and contributed talks, selected from received abstracts. Participation and abstract submission by students and postdocs are strongly encouraged. More details on the program will be provided on the second circular and on the conference web site.
