31st May – Dedication to Peter Higgs


Our next colloquium will be a Dedication to Peter Higgs on May 31st in Physicum E204.


We are pleased to announce a distinguished session in our spring colloquium series, dedicated to celebrating the legacy of the late Professor Peter Higgs, a British theoretical physicist, University of Edinburgh professor, and the 2013 Nobel laureate in Physics for his groundbreaking contributions to our understanding of the mass of subatomic particles.

This special event will feature two insightful presentations. Professor Kimmo Tuominen, a leading figure in particle physics at the University of Helsinki, will open the session with an exploration of Professor Higgs‘ illustrious career and seminal theoretical work. Following him, Professor Mikko Voutilainen, an expert in experimental particle physics, will focus into the experimental efforts that led to the discovery of the Higgs boson, a cornerstone of the Standard Model of particle physics.

Join us on Friday, May 31, 2024, at 14:15 in Physicum E204. The session is expected to last about 45 minutes. For those unable to attend in
person, we will also offer a Zoom experience:
