Higgs Hunting

12—14 September 2022 | Paris, France

Venue: IJCLab and LPNHE
Registration deadline: 05/09/2022
Contact: Valérie Brouillard & Emilie Bonnardel

The origin of electroweak symmetry breaking is one of the central topics of research in fundamental physics. The discovery of a Higgs boson at CERN on 4 July 2012, following a hunt that spanned several decades and multiple colliders, changed the landscape of these investigations and provided key evidence for the Brout–Englert–Higgs mechanism of mass generation through the spontaneous breaking of Electroweak symmetry.

Almost ten years later, the hunt goes on several fronts, in particular for:

  • New physics through precision studies of the properties of the Higgs boson: in particular its mass, spin and couplings to other Standard Model particles.
  • New production and decay modes, in particular in processes involving multiple Higgs bosons which provide key insight into the shape of the Higgs potential.
  • New Higgs-like states and signals for physics beyond the Standard Model.

The 12th workshop of the Higgs Hunting series organised on 12–14 September 2022 will present an overview of these topics, focusing in particular on new developments in the LHC Run-2 analyses, detailed studies of Higgs boson properties and possible deviations from Standard Model predictions. Highlights will also include a first look at LHC Run-3 analyses, prospects from studies at future colliders, and recent theoretical developments.
