The minimal cell is an important concept to synthesize the cellular life from non-living matter. Prof. Luisi is an outstanding pioneer in this research field and has shed light on the road to the minimal cell. He will visit Japan to attend an international symposium on “Fluctuation and Structure out of Equilibrium 2015” supported by Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas "Synergy of Fluctuation and Structure : Quest for Universal Laws in Non-Equilibrium Systems". Taking this opportunity we planned a small workshop to discuss the approach toward the synthesizing life, including a special lecture by Prof. Luisi. Especially we organized this workshop to encourage communications between Prof. Luisi and young researchers in the related fields. We believe that this workshop produces new network to develop the minimal cells.
