Under the auspices of CERN, ECFA and NuPECC, a Conceptual Design Report is being prepared on the physics, detector and accelerator for an ep/eA collider, which by adding an O(60) GeV energy electron beam to the proton/ion beams of the LHC, will open a path to high mass and lowest Bjorken x explorations of polarised electron/positron-quark/gluon interactions at TeV energies. The LHeC will extend the kinematic range of ep deep inelastic scattering (in 1/x and Q2) and the integrated luminosity by factors of 100 as compared to HERA. The presentation will highlight the physics programme and describe the design of a new detector and the two options of the accelerator considered, a ring-ring and a linac-ring version of the LHeC.
