Distinguished University professor Emeritus Jan V. Sengers (joint, Department of Chemical Engineering [ChBE] and Institute for Physical Science and Technology [IPST]) was a guest of honor at the 108th Statistical Mechanics Conference held at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. Sengers was recognized for his "seminal contributions, both experimental and theoretical, to our understanding of fluctuations nonequilibrium fluids" at the event's gala dinner on December 17.

Sengers' longtime colleague, Professor Mikhail Anisimov (ChBE/IPST) also attended the conference, where he delivered a talk on entropy-driven liquid-liquid transitions in pure substances.
