We give an overview of an interdisciplinary meeting held last year in Windsor to discuss the evidence for fine-tuning in living systems. Many of the papers presented there appear in this volume, so this serves as an introduction to them. We also briefly review a meeting held the previous year in Cambridge to assess the evidence for fine-tuning in physics and cosmology.
