Title: NNPDF2.1: Including heavy quark mass effects in NNPDF fits

Abstract

In this contribution we present the NNPDF2.1 parton distribution functions (PDF) set. The NNPDF2.1 set is a set extracted from a global fit to Deep-Inelastic Scattering (DIS), fixed target Drell-Yan (DY), Electroweak vector boson and inclusive jet cross-sections at colliders data. It is performed using the NNPDF methodology which relies on Monte Carlo techniques for determination of uncertainties and Neural Networks as unbiased interpolants.
