Higgs10 – save the date!

On 4 July 2012, half a century’s wait came to an end as the ATLAS and CMS experiments announced the discovery of the Higgs boson. Ten years on, we mark the occasion and look forward to a bright future for Higgs research.

The centrepiece of the Higgs10 celebrations is a full-day scientific symposium in CERN’s main auditorium on 4 July. This will celebrate the discovery, give an overview of what’s been learned since then, and take a look forward at what’s still to come.

On the eve of the symposium, there will be a public screening of the film Particle Fever at the Globe, followed by a discussion with CERN scientists and other symposium speakers. Similar events with local scientists are being organised in communities across the region from late April to June. Throughout the CERN Member States and at partner laboratories around the world, events ranging from science cafés to lunchtime exhibits for decision-makers are being prepared.

Look out too for a series of articles in the Bulletin, a special issue of the CERN Courier and new content on the home.cern website.

Full details will be published soon but, in the meantime, save the date of 4 July 2022 and make sure you don’t miss out!
