Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and the ATLAS and CMS detectors have shown exceptional performance over the last 10 years. In the first run, the Higgs boson was discovered; subsequently, data collected in the second run have been used to put the whole Standard Model theory under the microscope. This proposed Special Issue is aiming to collect review articles covering what has been learned from the second run’s results, and how this will guide us through the next steps in the HEP research field, looking at four different physics sectors, namely: (1) EW physics, (2) QCD physics (3) Higgs physics, and (4) beyond the Standard Model physics.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Title: Exploring the Higgs boson physics: new observations and measurements
Authors: Paolo Francavilla
Affiliation: CERN
Abstract: The determination of the Higgs boson properties during the second LHC data-taking period (Run2) represents a fundamental step forward in high energy physics. Precedently uncharted regions have been explored thanks to observations of new phenomena, and thanks to improved measurements of the Higgs boson. This review will guide the reader through a selection of these key observations and measurements, framing them in the perspectives of future LHC data-takings and future colliders.
