The aim is to present an interdisciplinary conference which offers insights from both philosophy and psychology into the ares of temporal experience, memory, and imagination, and how these interact with each other. 

The conference aims to be a collaborative and constructive two days, in which we will have four keynote speakers (selected from philosophy and psychology), as well as four graduate speakers (selected by competition - see the website/CFP). 

We have three main aims for this conference:
1. To encourage interdisciplinary research on the above topics primarily between philosophers and psychologists (as indicated by our keynotes), but also seeking further insight from across the Humanities and Social Sciences.
2. To facilitate discussion between academic staff, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students working in these areas.
3. To encourage discussion between those working in the areas of memory, imagination, and temporal experience, such as to focus on the overlap between these topics.

The conference is intended to answer some of the following questions (though it is not limited to these):
- Does memory and/or imagination have a role to play in our experience of time?
- Should memory be thought of as involving imagination, and do what extent?
- What are the implications of imagination's involvement in memory for the reliability of memory?
- Do deficiencies in memory impact on imaginative abilities, and vice versa?

We would like to express our gratitude to the funding bodies making this conference possible. Thanks go to the Analysis Trust, the Mind Association, the Warwick Philosophy Department, and the Warwick Humanities Research Centre.
