Happy Birthday Higgs Boson -- GGI Tea Breaks' special


On 4 July 2012, the ATLAS and CMS collaborations at CERN announced the discovery of a Higgs boson-like particle, marking a historical milestone in our understanding of the fundamental interactions. Determining the nature and role of this particle has been a main objective of the LHC experiments, and will remain a crucial theme at future colliders. GGI celebrates the 10th anniversary of the discovery with this special GGI Tea Breaks' event. The programme includes three talks. The first talk will illustrate the 30 year-long experimental enterprise that made the Higgs boson discovery possible, its challenges and breakthroughs. The second talk will focus on the theoretical work that led to the prediction and that was instrumental for the discovery. The importance and significance of the discovery will be analyzed by the third talk, offering a modern perspective and an outlook. A general discussion will follow with ample time for questions and comments.
