PhD honoris causa to Peter Higgs

The award-giving ceremony of the honorary doctorate (PhD) in Theoretical Particle Physics to Peter Higgs, the theorist of the Boson which was named after the scientist himself, has just ended. Higgs was unable to take part in the event due to health problems.
Guido Tonelli, the recipient of the Enrico Fermi 2013 Award assigned by the Italian Physics Society (SIF), in representation of the CMS experiment, and Anna Di Ciaccio, in representation of the Atlas experiment at LHC, collected the awards on Higgs' behalf.
