Recent simulations have shown that a high-energy proton bunch can excite strong plasma wake- fields and accelerate a bunch of electrons to the energy frontier in a single stage of acceleration. This scheme could lead to a future ep collider using the LHC for the proton beam and a compact electron accelerator of length 170 m, producing electrons of energy up to 100 GeV. The parameters of such a collider are discussed as well as conceptual layouts within the CERN accelerator complex. The physics of plasma wakefield acceleration will also be introduced, with the AWAKE experiment, a proof of principle demonstration of proton-driven plasma wakefield acceleration, briefly reviewed, as well as the physics possibilities of such an ep collider.
