Representational drift poses the question of how sensory perception, memory, motor behavior, and task performance are maintained over time, and provides a window into the adaptive properties of neural circuits on long timescales. Elucidating the underlying causes and implications of this phenomenon may be crucial to our understanding of how neuronal function underlies basic sensory, motor, and cognitive processes. Proper characterization of drift across the nervous system, both in terms of its function and underlying mechanism, will require concerted effort and cooperation on both experimental and theoretical fronts. This conference will spur these efforts across species, brain regions, cell types and behaviors, and provide a forum for experimentalists and theorists to debate the causes and implications of drift as well as formulate promising directions to gain traction on this question. The format will include long and short talks, posters, breakout sessions and ample formal and informal discussion time.
