A high-energy high-luminosity polarized electron-ion collider (EIC) is the Nuclear Science Advisory Committee's highest priority for new facility construction. A dedicated $e+A$ Monte Carlo event generator is especially crucial during the process of identifying observables and the experimental needs they would pose to detector designs. The JETSCAPE collaboration recently released version 1.0 of an innovative modular event generator and simulation framework with a unified interface and a comprehensive suite of model implementations for all stages of ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions from initial state through hadronization.
A key feature of the framework design is modularity and agnosticism regarding the underlying physics assumptions. It thus promises to be an ideal candidate to serve as a platform for developing Monte Carlo models of electron-ion collisions specifically because it allows to concentrate on one specific aspect, such as medium interaction or hadronization, while leaving other modules unchanged. An overview of necessary modifications and baseline performance for electron+proton
collisions will be presented alongside first feasibility tests for medium interaction models.
