A Conversation with Professor Peter Higgs and Colleagues
Thursday, 2 May 2013, Academy House

On Thursday, 2 May 2013, in the Royal Irish Academy, Professor Peter Higgs was joined by University of Edinburgh colleagues, Professor Alan Walker, Dr Victoria Martin and Francisca Garay to explore four generations of research on the Higgs boson. Speakers explained how the Higgs boson fits into modern theories of particle physics, what it's like to work at the Large Hadron Collider and the Inspiration for the Higgs boson.

Finally, speakers looked at how the work of one scientist, Professor Peter Higgs, inspired generations of physicists to work in particle physics and how the Higgs boson was eventually discovered. The event was open to public.
