As simple as it seems, the multi-TeV LHC beams will allow for the most

energetic fixed-target experiment ever performed. Such an experiment,

tentatively named AFTER for “A Fixed-Target ExperRiment”, gives access

to new domains of particle and nuclear physics, complementing that of

collider experiments, in particular that of Brookhaven's Relativistic

Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the projects of Electron-ion colliders

(EIC). The instantaneous luminosity achievable with AFTER using typical

targets would surpass that of RHIC by more than 3 orders of magnitude.

This provides a novel testing ground for QCD at unprecedented laboratory

energies and momentum transfers. I will report on the recent progresses

on the project AFTER@LHC, in particular on the physics case and on the

possibilities for the beam extraction.
