This question already has an answer here:

Just wondering if there is a cycles alternative for the 'halo' material effect only found in Blender Internal? This halo effect turns an object into small glowing orbs instead of one solid object. I am looking for this effect to include in a cycles animation, however the halo option is not available for cycles at all.

I've attached the .blend file to show the halo effect I'm trying to achieve in cycles.
