The Sixth Workshop on Particle Correlations and Femtoscopy (WPCF2010) continues the tradition of bringing together experts in experimental and theoretical aspects of measuring source characteristics in high energy collisions through particle correlations, both short- and long-range, and fluctuations.

The workshop will cover the problems of the evolution of quark/hadronic matter formed in high energy collisions and of the methods to extract the information on this evolution by the analysis of the data on final state particles.
