The question of how perception and memory accurately represent the world is a central one in philosophy of perception and philosophy of memory. While much work has been dedicated to exploring the nature of accurate representations in perception and memory individually, not much has been said about the relationship between perceptual and mnemonic accurate representations. Recent developments in the existing literature, which emphasize the existence of commonalities between the content and format of perceptual and mnemonic representations and the interdependence of the processes responsible for producing those representations, highlight some interesting points of contact between these two domains. The goal of this workshop is, therefore, to promote a more systematic discussion of the relationship between accuracy in perception and memory by bringing together philosophers of perception and philosophers of memory working on related issues.
