For the Run 2 of the LHC next-to-leading order electroweak corrections will play an important role. Even though they are typically moderate at the level of total cross sections they can lead to substantial deviations in the shapes of distributions. In particular for new physics searches but also for a precise determination of Standard Model observables their inclusion in the theoretical predictions is mandatory for a reliable estimation of the Standard Model contribution. In this article we

We discuss general issues and properties of NLO electroweak corrections and present some examples, including the full calculation of the NLO corrections to the production of a W boson in association with two jets computed using GoSaM interfaced to MadDipole.
