Among the huge and growing amount of LHC data, we found a Higgs, but have yet to understand which one.

Against this backdrop, the workshop brings together present and future experts of electroweak symmetry breaking, to explain, discuss, and learn about the numerous aspects − from experiment to theory − approaches − from perturbative to strongly interacting all the way to quantum chromodynamics − and methods.

The workshop will take place at the Conference Centre of the German Physical Society in Bad Honnef, Germany. The program consists of invited and contributed talks as well as a poster session. The workshop is funded by the Wilhelm & Else Heraeus Foundation, which covers costs for accommodation and meals for all participants and also donates a price for the best poster presentation.
