Gravitational Waves emitted by inspiraling and coalescing compact binary systems requires for their detection accurate theoretical modeling. In the early inspiral phase the post-Newtonian (PN) approximation to General Relativity needs to be pushed to high order for data analysis purposes and high accuracy comparison with Numerical Relativity computations describing the final merger and ringdown phases also demand extreme precision. In this talk an overview of the problem of deriving the equation of motion of compact binaries will be given, with emphasis on the recent efforts applying effective field theory techniques within the PN framework, which are also important for applications to self-force comparisons and effective-one-body calculations.
