  • Higgs Physics

    This session will be dedicated to the latest experimental results and to the theoretical work in the Higgs boson sector. Current approaches for studying the Higgs boson at the LHC and just beyond (HL-LHC) will be presented. Prospects on the measurements of Higgs properties at proposed future colliders will complete the overview.
