Over the last two decades, algebraic and numerical techniques for nonlinear problems have begun a steady and relentless transition from mostly academic constructions, to widely used tools across the mathematical sciences, engineering and industrial applications. The workshop will bring together participants from many diverse fields including computer vision, cryptography, optimization and control, partial differential equations, robotics, and quantum computation, with the common interest in nonlinear algebraic computations. The main goal is to assess the state of the art, to stimulate further progress, and to accelerate developments by bringing together these diverse communities and have them share computational challenges and successes.
