Higgs Couplings 2017: Program

Higgs Couplings 2017 begins on the morning on Monday, November 6th, and ends in the early afternoon on Friday, November 10th. As this conference has a focus on scientific exchange and discussions, we ask all participants to attend the full conference. While we are looking forward to excellent talks, we hope that the speakers also contribute to the discussions. Please note that for all plenary talks we ask to keep 1/3 of the time as discussion time.

The Wednesday afternoon session will not be filled by invitation. If you are interested in giving a talk there, please contact the organizers directly and indicate it in your registration. To accomodate all talks there will be three sessions in parallel, each talks 20+5 minutes.
