Deeply-inelastic scattering (DIS) stands to enter a golden age with the prospect of precision programs at the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) and Large Hadron-electron Collider (LHeC). While these programs will be of considerable importance to resolving longstanding issues in (non)perturbative QCD as well as hadronic and nuclear structure, they will also have valuable implications for a wider range of physics at the Energy and Intensity Frontiers, including at the High-Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) and future $\nu A$ facilities. In this plenary contribution, we highlight a number of salient examples of the potential HEP impact from the complementary EIC and LHeC programs drawn from their respective Yellow Report and Whitepaper. Interested readers are encouraged to consult the extensive studies and literature from which these examples are taken for more detail.

These proceedings offer a clearly described and well motivated overview of the potential for DIS physics and the EIC and LHeC. I would suggest clarifying in one or two places what is plotted in the Figures, i.e.: why is the JAM19 result in Fig. 2 (right) so different at high x? And what are measurements (black) and what projections (pink) for Fig. 4, in addition to the EIC projections? However these are minor things that the author may want to consider. I am certainly happy to recommend publication either way.
