Precision tests of QCD based on deeply inelastic scattering data require a precise knowledge of the heavy flavor contributions to the structure functions. We report on recent calculations of moments of the heavy flavor Wilson coefficients at O(alpha_s^3) contributing to F_2^c. Our results are valid in the region Q^2/m_c^2 > 10 GeV^2 and derive from the use of the technique of massive operator matrix elements.
