Precision timing has always been a prominent topic in the instrumentation for high-energy physics experiments. In this document I discuss what are the perspectives for the use of silicon sensors for a time-of-flight detector in a next-generation heavy-ion experiment at the LHC. A brief overview of the experiment and a preliminary assessment of the expected particle-identification performance is also presented.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
