| *1 Short biography
Guido Tonelli is a full professor in general physics at the University of Pisa (Italy) and a
researcher at the Italian Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN). He has pursued high-energy physics
research in several CERN and Fermilab experiments. The last two decades of his career have
been devoted to the search for the Higgs boson and for signatures of new physics beyond the
Standard Model. He has been working on the CMS experiment at CERN since 1993, having
served as its spokesperson in 2010 and 2011. During his mandate he gives the highest priority
to the search for the Standard Model Higgs Boson following personally and directly some of the
main activities. On December 13 2011, he presents in a joint CERN Seminar, together with the
ATLAS Spokesperson, Fabiola Gianotti, the preliminary results of the analysis of 2011 data
containing intriguing hints of the possible presence of the SM Higgs boson in the vicinity of 125GeV/c2.
After the formal announcement of the discovery of the Higgs boson by ATLAS and CMS on July 4th 2012,
those hints are now considered the first evidence of the presence of the new particle in LHC data.
He is author of more than 500 scientific publications with average index of citations exceeding 50.
