We anticipate this discursive, chalk-talk based workshop to be a stimulating and ground breaking meeting that will bring together diverse perspectives on the origins of life. Our goal is a collapse of the divide between perspectives from biology (especially evolutionary biology/ ecology) and chemistry/ physics.

Attendance is limited to 40 participants, the following of whom are specifically invited:

Erwin Frey (LMU)
Ulrich Gerland (TUM)
Nigel Goldenfeld (Illinois)
Phil Holliger (LMB)
Nick Lane (UCL)
