Abstract
Processes involving heavy quarks, are usually described in two
seemingly orthogonal factorisation schemes: one in which the heavy quark
is treated as an infinitely massive object, decoupled from QCD evolution, and one in which it is treated on the same footings as a light quark.
These two approaches only differ by their resummation of a certain class
of logarithms and mass suppressed terms. In view of recent results,
in this talk, we present recent developments that extend a phenomenological
scheme, that tries to incorporate the best of both worlds, to \NLO in Monte
Carlo event generation.
