High energy particle colliders experiments are facing ever more challenging conditions, operating at todays accelerators capable of providing instantaneous luminosities of 1034 cm-2s-1 and above. The high center of mass energy, the large number of simultaneous collision of beam particles in the experiments and the very high repetition rates of the collision events pose huge challenges. They result in extremely high particle fluxes, causing very high occupancies in the particle physics detectors operating at these machines. A precise timing information with a precision of around 10 ps and below is seen as a major aid in the reconstruction of the physics events under such challenging conditions. I will present the recent progress in enabling such technologies for collider experiments, and the expected improvements to the event reconstruction from high precision timing detectors.
