In these proceedings we report recent progress on understanding hadron and jet production in electron-nucleus collisions at the future Electron-Ion Collider [1,2]. These processes will play an essential role in the exploration of the partonic structure of nuclei and the study of parton shower evolution in strongly-interacting matter. We employ the framework of soft-collinear effective theory, generalized to include in-medium interactions, to present the first theoretical results for inclusive hadron and jet cross sections, as well as the jet charge modification in deep inelastic scattering on nuclei. We further demonstrate how to separate initial-state and final-state effects.

The paper, "Nuclear matter effects on jet production at electron-ion colliders" describes recent theoretical work on understanding hadron and jet production at the future Electron-Ion Collider. The authors employ soft-collinear effective field theory framework, modified to include in-medium effects to provide the first theoretical results for inclusive cross section measurements of hadron and jet production. The theoretical framework contained in the manuscript appears to be well-described and on a solid footing.

The manuscript meets the requirements to be published in this journal.

There is a small comment I would appreciate the authors taking into consideration. In the conclusion there is a brief mention of promising upcoming results on charm and bottom jets at the Electron-Ion Collider. It might be useful to other readers to introduce the impact of these measurements in an earlier section. While the usefulness of these results is expanded upon in the conclusion, it should also be included prior to that section, to demonstrate how those results relate to this work.

answer to question

We thank the referee for the review of the (proceedings) manuscript. We added comments on the utility if heavy flavor jets in the introduction. The ArXiv version has also been updated. We hope that the revised manuscript can be accepted in SciPost
