Title: In search for the origin of mass
Abstract: Summary Mass is a concept that we confront in our everyday life. It comes in several forms that are subtly different, but very often it is thought of as a measure of inertia; the property of matter that quantifies its resistance to acceleration. But where does mass come from? In addressing this question, we will discuss what we know and what we are still trying to understand regarding the origin of mass and we will take a journey from experiments at the CERN Large Hadron Collider, to experiments in deep underground laboratories
