Within the upgrade program of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) for the HL-LHC data taking, the installation of a new timing layer to measure the time of minimum ionizing particles (MIPs) with a time resolution of ~30-40 ps is planned. The time information of the tracks from this new MIP Timing Detector (MTD) will improve the rejection of spurious tracks and vertices arising from the expected harsh pile-up conditions from machine operation. At the same time this detector will provide particle identification capabilities based on the time-of-flight, and will bring unique physics opportunities for interesting signatures such as those including long-lived particles. An overview of these possibilities is given, using the state of the art of the simulation and reconstruction of the MTD detector.

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.
