This is going to depend heavily on what program you're using. One general idea does come to mind, though. Create particles that spawn other particles, using interparticle collision if possible to trigger the effect. Otherwise simply do it by particle age.

Let us know what program you're using and we can be more specific:)

Sorry, I must have skipped right over that! You can use particle spawning in Max, but you can't do interparticle collision without a plugin. I think there's a free plugin for this, but I don't remember what it is called or where to get it. I think it was probably by Peter Watje, though.

Spawning alone might still give you a decent result, give it a try. Basically you set the particles to spawn other particles based on age, or even collision with a (non-particle) surface. I don't know whether you can chain up the spawning though (i.e. have the second generation particles spawn more particles, etc.).
