Emergent phenomena are the hallmark of many-body system and yet to unravel their nature remains one of the central challenges in condensed-matter physics. In order to advance our understanding it is crucial to learn from the different manifestations of emergence as well as from the interplay of different emergent phases, such as magnetism and superconductivity. Addressing such problems, it is necessary to master a number of techniques from traditionally separate branches of research, ranging from ab-initio approaches based on DFT to advanced many-body methods to electron-lattice coupling and dynamics. In this school we aim to analyze emergence in some of its major manifestations in the solid-state and compare methodologies use to address specific aspects. The aim of our school is to introduce advanced graduate students and up to the essence of emergence and the modern approaches for modeling emergent properties of correlated matter.
