There is increasing interest in the application of magnetism in the technology as representatively represented by spintronics. However, the theoretical description of magnetism, which has been a fundamental topic since the establishment of quantum mechanics in the early 1900s, is still the most challenging task in condensed matter physics. The physics of magnetism requires the accurate evaluation of competing energies and is manifested in the regime where local and itinerant electron physics meet. For a better understanding of magnetism and related phenomena, diverse computational approaches, based on the mean field theory as well as on many body physics, are required. The description of the magnetism employing the computational approaches is an extremely dynamic field, where extensive developments are continuously tried. In this workshop, continuing with our previous successful practice in 2018, 2019, and 2022, we intend to gather outstanding and active young researchers in the computational and/or theoretical fields worldwide and discuss cutting-edge research and current problems in the field of magnetism. The covered topics will include various methods, e.g. density functional theory, dynamical mean-field theory, diagrammatic approaches, and field theories. Diverse physical phenomena such as metal-insulator transitions, magnetic phase transitions, and superconductivity, in a wide range of systems from conventional metal to correlated systems, will be covered. We hope this workshop will act as a continuous platform for discussion and collaboration among especially young researchers in the field, as successfully done in previous events.
