                                 XIII Workshop on Particle Correlations and Femtoscopy

              Organized by the Henryk Niewodniczański Institute of Nuclear Physics PAN

                                                                     Kraków, Poland

Scientific Programme

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.
