The discovery of the Higgs particle this summer was world braking news. What is the Higgs particle? How was it discovered? Why did it take 50 years to make the discovery and why was it so difficult? What does the discovery mean and why is it so important? Uppsala University participates in the Higgs research at CERN and will celebrate the Higgs discovery with a public Higgs Fest Symposium for its employees and students and for the general public.

Program
Higgs and Uppsala University
Introduction by Tord Ekelöf, professor of elementary particle physics at Uppsala University

How the great discovery was made at CERN
Talk by Fabiola Gianotti, Spokesperson for the ATLAS experiment at CERN, Honorary Doctor at Uppsala University

Congratulations
Interlude by Janet Conrad, professor of physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

What the great discovery means and why it is so important
Talk by Frank Wilczek, Nobel Prize in Physics, professor of physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA

------------------
In 2005 a world particle physics conferens was held in Uppsala. At the conference dinner at Uppsala Castle prof. Franck Wilczek and prof. Janet Conrad, both from MIT in the USA, made a bet recorded on a paper towel. Frank Wilczek bet that the Higgs boson would be found at CERNs large accelerator LHC. Janet Conrad bet against.
She will meet Frank Wilczek again at Uppsala Castle during the Symposium to congratulate him as the winner of the bet.
