The conference is postponed.

Due to health concerns relating to the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the 2020 WPCF conference will be postponed until 2021. We will determine the new dates for this conference later.


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 concern dynamical and thermodynamical properties of emitting sources produced in heavy-ion collisions, including links to phase transitions, the equation of state, and transport 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, molecules and spectroscopic properties of unbound states. Lastly, diffraction in high energy physics has been developed with applications in elastic p+p collisions at the LHC including proton holography. The scope of the conference will include correlation and femtoscopy research at RHIC/LHC energies and at low - intermediate energies as well.

This workshop is dedicated to the memory of John Alexander, our dear friend, and colleague, who passed in Sept. 2019.




This conference is hosted by the Physics Department and International Centre for Environmental and Nuclear Sciences University of the West Indies,Mona Road Kingston 7, Jamaica and by the University of Stony Brook, New York, USA
