Title: Precision at the LHC: why and how

Abstract:  With Run II, the LHC experiment already reached an unprecedented level of precision compared to previous hadron colliders. The amount of data collected in Run III and the High-Luminosity run will increase quickly and dramatically. I will discuss specific challenges to theorists that must be overcome to provide predictions that have the precision necessary to match the accuracy of data. A few novel ideas to exploit this precision directly or indirectly will also be discussed.
