After an introduction to the EIC (parameters, physics goals, and status)
and a quick overview of the various detector concepts being developed for the EIC,
I will introduce the TOPSiDE detector concept. TOPSiDE aims a the detection and
identification of all particles created in electron-proton/ion collisions at the EIC
while achieving the best possible momentum/energy resolution. The
measurement of hadronic jets exploits the advantages offered by Particle
Flow Algorithms (PFAs), which in turn require imaging calorimetry. Particle
identification is achieved through time-of-flight measurements in the tracker
and the electromagnetic calorimeter, necessitating the deployment of
ultra-fast silicon sensors. Simulation studies showed that timing
resolutions of 10 picoseconds are required to achieve pion-kaon separation
up to 7 GeV/c.

I will review the ongoing detector R&D efforts to realize TOPSiDE and also some
of the benchmark physics processes being studied to validate the concept.
