  Recent simulation shows that a self-modulated high energy proton bunch can excite large amplitude plasma wakefields and accelerate an external electron bunch to higher energies*. Based on this scheme, future colliders, either an electron-positron linear collider (e+e collider) or an electron-hadron collider (e.g. LHeC) can be conceived. In this paper, we discuss some key design issues for an e+e collider and a high energy LHeC collider, based on the existing infrastructure of the CERN accelerator complex.
