A Conceptual Design Report has been completed for a new electron-proton and electron-ion collider, which achieves a cms energy of 1.3 TeV in ep using the high energy beams of the LHC. Designed for synchronous ep and pp operation, the LHeC will be a high luminosity collider with a wide ranging physics program on high precision deep inelastic scattering and new physics. The electron beam is designed as an energy recovery linac in a racetrack configuration with triple return arcs. As well as a summary of the Conceptual Design, the next steps towards a technical design of the LHeC are presented.
