Continuing the tradition initiated in the MFO workshops held in 2014 and 2017, this workshop was dedicated to the newest developments in real algebraic geometry and polynomial optimization, with a particular emphasis on free non-commutative real algebraic geometry and hyperbolic programming. A particular effort was invested in exploring the interrelations with free probability. This established an interesting dialogue between researchers working in real algebraic geometry and those working in free probability, from which emerged new exciting and promising synergies.
