This conference will focus on the interaction between polynomial
system solving, kinematics, and robotics. The foundational methods
in numerical algebraic geometry were motivated by the solving of polynomial systems
arising from kinematics and robotics. For example, versions
of homotopy continuation implemented on computers were already being used to solve kinematics problems
in the early 1960s. This interplay continues over 50 years later
with new algorithms being developed motivated by kinematics and robotics, and novel problems solved using these algorithms.
