Title: The new theory prediction pipeline and towards N3LO PDF
Abstract: In this talk I review the recent progress on providing theory predictions inside a PDF fit and show the progress towards N3LO PDF determination. In the first part of the talk, I introduce the new framework in NNPDF for providing theory predictions, dubbed pineline. I list and comment on all the necessary ingredients and their programs developed as Open Source codes. In the second part of the talk I report on the progress of the extension of PDF fits to next-to-next-to-next-to-leading order (N3LO) using the new theory pipeline.
