The Electron Ion Collider (EIC) is one of the most ambitious accelerators designed. The highest design luminosity — aimed at in the first ~10 years of the EIC operations — is 10^{34} cm^{-2}s^{-1}. The aim of this workshop is to look beyond this initial phase and explore which physics might drive such luminosity demands. These talks will include estimations for the increased data sets, impact on detector technologies and discuss the resulting systematic uncertainties and controls over them. Crucially, such an increase in luminosity cannot happen without dedicated accelerator R&D. As such we will have discussions on what accelerator R&D investigations need to be launched now to achieve this future luminosity goal.

        Although all known laboratory phenomena are described by the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics, this theory suffers from poorly understood features. Various models beyond the SM (BSM) have been suggested to address these issues. Since there has been no conclusive evidence for new particles yet, the SM effective field theory can be used to parameterize BSM effects. In this framework, operators built of higher-dimensional interactions of the existing SM particles are introduced together with corresponding Wilson coefficients. In this talk, we focus on dimension-6 semi-leptonic four-fermion operators and demonstrate how asymmetries in neutral-current deep inelastic scattering at the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) can probe these possible BSM effects. We find that the EIC can provide probes competitive with those coming from LHC Drell-Yan data, and resolve degeneracies that occur in neutral-current Drell-Yan measurements. With a ten-fold luminosity upgrade, these Wilson coefficient constraints become significantly stronger. Designed as a QCD machine, our results show that the EIC also has strong potential for probing BSM physics in ways complementary to the LHC.
