### Description

The effective field theory of the light $0^{++}$ scalar is discussed in an important near-conformal strongly coupled BSM gauge theory and its lattice simulations. Relevant for the composite Higgs, two distinct scenarios are analyzed for the emergent light scalar as composite $\sigma$-particle of chiral symmetry breaking or the dilaton of conformal symmetry breaking.
