The conference "Scalars 2017" will be held in Warsaw in November/December 2017. The meeting is organized jointly by the Faculty of Physics at the University of Warsaw and the Division for Physics of Fundamental Interactions of the Polish Physical Society. The conference will take place at the OCHOTA campus of the University of Warsaw. The meeting will start with the registration on November 30th (Thursday) in the morning (8-9 am) followed by the opening at 9 am. The conference "Scalars 2017" is a continuation of earlier "Scalars" organized in Warsaw in 2011, 2013, and 2015. The meeting aims at being an opportunity to discuss various aspects of physics of scalar particles. In particular we plan to cover the following issues:
SM Higgs boson: theory and experiment
Experimental constraints on the scalar sector
Extensions of the minimal scalar sector of the Standard Model, e.g. multi-Higgs dublet models, the Georgi-Machacek model, ...
Scalars in cosmology: dark matter, baryogenesis, inflatons, axions, relaxions, etc.
Scale-invariant scalar sector
Composite Higgs bosons
Effective field theory approach to Higgs physics
Elementary scalars within extra dimensions: gauge-Higgs, unification, stabilization of extra dimensions, radions, bulk scalars, etc...
Fundamental scalars within supersymmetric extensions of the SM
Higgs bosons on lattice
Future experimental searches for scalars, e.g. at LHC or ILC
