The "Workshop on Topics in Soft Condensed Matter" will be held on November 29th, 2015 at the Department of Nuclear Science & Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, to honor the career and achievements of Prof. Sow-Hsin Chen, in the occasion of his 80th birthday. The aim of the meeting is to gather some of the scientists who will be at the MRS Meeting in Boston at the end of November, and whose path have crossed with Prof. Chen during his last more than 45 years at MIT, and to give them an opportunity to commemorate past interaction and discuss recent progresses in the field of soft-condensed matter research, which has been so powerfully pushed forward by Prof. Chen.
