We report on EPPS16, the ﬁrst global analysis of nuclear parton distribution functions (nPDFs)to include LHC data. Also for the ﬁrst time, a full ﬂavour dependence of nPDFs is allowed. While the included Z and W data are found to have insufﬁcient statistics to yield stringent constraints, the CMS 5.02 TeV proton–lead dijet data prove crucial in setting the shape of nuclear gluon modiﬁcations. With these and other observables being measured in proton–lead runs, we are experiencing a shift of nPDFs to the LHC precision era.
