Welcome to HPNP2013

The Toyama International Workshop on "Higgs as a Probe of New Physics 2013" (HPNP2013)
will be hosted by the University of Toyama.
The workshop will be held from February 13-16, 2013 on
Gofuku Campus of the University of Toyama, Toyama, Japan

On July 4th, 2012, the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) collaboration reported
the discovery of a new particle consistent with the Higgs boson,
which is the origin of mass in our world as well as a window to physics at the terascale.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together Higgs hunters from around the world to discuss
the relation between Higgs physics and models beyond the Standard Model.
