On 4 July 2012, a packed CERN Auditorium learned that the long-awaited Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism had finally been revealed by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN. The subsequent 10 years have seen impressive advances in our understanding of the Higgs boson's properties, and there is much more still to be learned.

The centrepiece of the celebrations of the 10th anniversary of this astounding discovery is a full-day (9.00 a.m.–6.00 p.m.) scientific symposium in CERN’s main auditorium on 4 July. Speakers will share their recollections of the discovery, look at what’s been learned since, present the latest results and take a look ahead at what’s still to come.

Register on Indico to attend the in-person event in the main auditorium (registration subject to approval for capacity reasons). The symposium will also be relayed to the Council Chamber and, for those who cannot attend, the full symposium will be webcast with live captions (the morning session will also be webcast in French).
