Sven Heinemeyer (CSIC (Madrid, ES))

The workshop is intended to understand, discuss, solve problems concerning Higgs boson searches and (precision) measurements at the LHC and future (ILC, ...) colliders. The focus will be on the Higgs sector of the SM, the 2HDM and the MSSM.
For a successful Higgs boson search theory and experiment have to work hand in hand. This workshop should facilitate the interaction between experimental and theoretical Higgs physicists. The program consists of two parts: discussions of the results of the big experiments, as well as shorter theory presentations relevant to the subject. About half of the time is reserved for discussions.


for the next HDays! Should they be in 2018 or 2019?
Note: "Sep 17" is a vote for HDays18, "Sep 16" for HDays19.
