This workshop will bring together researchers in complex and real algebraic geometry and applied mathematics (physics and cryptography) to discuss numerical methods and open problems on algebraic curves. There will be a number of introductory talks to each of the following topics and invited lectures from specialists:

- Theoretical physics/DPE
- Computations with the Jacobian
- Random real topology
- Complexity of computing topology of real algebraic curves
- p-adic methods and applications to cryptography
