Abstract: 

 

Following the discovery of “the Higgs boson” two years ago by the two larger experiments of the LHC, ATLAS and CMS, the search for new physics continues. Measuring the properties of this new particle is necessary in order to constrain the parameter space where new physics lies. At the same time searches for additional “higgses” predicted by beyond the standard model theories are imperative (and exciting!). 

The aim of this talk is to give an overview of the searches for new physics in the Higgs sector performed by ATLAS and CMS. The current status of the searches as well as preparations for the next LHC run (RUN2) will be discussed. Emphasis is given on searches for additional Higgs bosons predicted by many extensions of the standard model.
