We propose a new framework for first-principles calculations of heavy-fermion materials. These are described in terms of the Kondo lattice Hamiltonian with the parameters extracted from a realistic density functional based calculation which is then solved using continuous-time quantum MonteCarlo method and dynamical mean field theory. As an example, we show our results for the Néel temperatures of cerium-122 compounds (CeX2Si2 with X=Ru, Rh, Pd, Cu, Ag, and Au) where the general trend around the magnetic quantum critical point is successfully reproduced. Our results are organized on a universal Doniach phase diagram in a semiquantitative way.
