Title: Overview of Higgs searches at CMS


The Standard Model has proven to be a very successful theoretical framework for interpreting the observed phenomenology of high energy particle physics. Nevertheless, there is no direct experimental evidence for Higgs particles. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN will be used to investigate the Higgs sector. The CMS and ATLAS detectors, installed at the LHC, are being constructed and data taking is scheduled to start in 2005. I will review the status of the CMS project and describe the strategy for seeking evidence for the elusive Higgs particles.
