The discovery of a Higgs-like boson at the Large Hadon Collider in 2012 was a major achievement in particle physics. Experimental efforts are ongoing to confirm that it is the Higgs boson predicted by the Standard Model. More importantly, physicists wish to build new powerful lepton colliders to fully study this unusual particle, to probe nature, and to attempt to discover new physics. The colloquium will focus on initiatives for new, large-scale accelerators designed to study the Higgs boson in detail.
