A subject of major importance in fundamental physics is the investigation of the origin of Electroweak Symmetry Breaking. The discovery announced at CERN on 4th July 2012 by the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations of a boson at a mass close to 125 GeV, compatible with this scalar boson of the Standard Model, the so-called Higgs boson, mainly in γγ, ZZ and WW decay modes, with compatible evidence also found at Fermilab in the bb mode, changed the landscape. This important discovery was acknowledged as decisive for the attribution of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics awarded jointly to François Englert and Peter Higgs . This 5th workshop of the "Higgs Hunting" series organized in Orsay on July 21-23, 2014 will discuss the developments of ongoing analyses, detailed studies of the new boson and possible deviations from Standard Model properties. Searches for additional bosons, prospects with future accelerators and recent theoretical developments will also be covered. This workshop will take place after the ICHEP Conference in Valencia (from 2 till 9 July 2014) and provides an ideal occasion for in-depth discussions on the latest results and on prospects .
