WPCF 2022 – 15th Workshop on Particle Correlations and Femtoscopy

Facility for Rare Isotope Beams

We are pleased to announce the Fifteenth Workshop on Particle Correlations and Femtoscopy,  WPCF 2022, to be held at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams on the campus of Michigan State University.


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 the application of correlation measurements to discern the thermodynamic properties and evolution of emitting sources produced in heavy-ion collisions or nuclear reactions. This includes correlations from final-state interactions, phase transition dynamics, initial state fluctuations, collective flow, and from charge, energy or momentum conservation.

A special session is devoted to the career of Pawel Danielewicz!




  • Femtoscopic correlations in heavy-ion collisions
  • Charge fluctuations and charge balance functions
  • Correlations of momentum and energy
  • Collective flow and vorticity
  • Correlations from fluctuating initial conditions
  • Identifying resonances with correlations
  • Phase coexistence and critical phenomena in heavy-ion collisions
  • Statistical methodologies for interpreting experimental data and theoretical models
  • Determining time scales in low-energy reactions
  • Bayesian analysis of heterogeneous data and models

These topics will be covered with 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 website.

Registration will be available online at the WPCF webpage. Once registration is open, registrants can propose a presentation they might give by submitting an abstract on the website (see the menu item "Abstract Submission"). The Organizing Committee also encourages anyone to nominate any other individual to present a talk by emailing suggestions to Kyle Brown (brownk@frib.msu.edu). The registration fee covers some lunches, coffee breaks, and two evening social gatherings.  

Important dates: April 20, 2022: Consideration of abstracts will begin.

To register for WPCF go to "Registration"

The Registration fees for Senior Researchers are  $150; Post Docs $ 100; Grad Students $50.

Early Registration ends on June 30, 2022. On July 1, 2022, registration will increase by $50.

 To pay your registration



Workshop Site: The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI 48824, USA

  • FRIB is a new major international user facility for nuclear physics, funded by the United States Department of Energy and by Michigan State University. First beams are arriving in May 2022.


  • Generous funding for WPCF 2022 has been provided by the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams


  • FRIB is located on the campus of Michigan State University. One can fly directly to the East Lansing airport, typically after connecting from Detroit or Chicago. A shuttle service provides transportation from the Detroit airport (DTW) to downtown East Lansing in approximately two hours. Information about lodging is posted on the workshop website.
