Precision timing has alway been a prominent topic in the instrumentation for high-energy physics experiments. In this document I discuss what the perspectives are 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.
