The International Symposia on Multiparticle Dynamics (ISMD) are a series of major international high-energy conferences which traditionally bring together a roughly equal mix of theorists and experimentalists from three different but related communities (high energy, heavy ions and astroparticle physics), with a common interest in reactions involving a large number of particles in the final state.
The XLIV International Symposium on Multiparticle Dynamics (ISMD 2014) will be held in Bologna (Italy) and is organized by INFN together with the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the local University and supported by the Franco Rimondi association. It will include a good balance between experimental and theoretical plenary talks and a poster session, spread over 5 days. The goal is to provide a pleasant and stimulating environment for presentation and discussion of recent experimental results as well as new developments in theory. Attendance is limited to about 120 participants.
