Pion condensation as a solution of the LHC proton-pion puzzle

In this talk I will review the recent success of the non-equilibrium hadronization model in describing the LHC data from PbPb collisions at 2.76 TeV. This approach allows to describe the measured particle multiplicities and spectra in a very economic way. It further predicts Bose-Einstein condensation for pions. This intriguing possibility will be addressed in details for finite systems with the use of higher order moments of the multiplicity distribution.
