An electron-ion collider (EIC) is likely to be one of the future large accelerator facilities for high energy and nuclear physics researches. EIC has long been considered a perfect gluon microscope to explore the fundamental structure of matter. At very high energies, EIC can also be utilized as a Higgs factory. Presently, there are seven EIC proposals under development worldwide. They are LHeC and FCC-he at CERN and ENC at GSI in Europe; eRHIC at BNL and JLEIC at JLab in the USA; and HIAF at IMP and CepC-SppC-he at IHEP in China. Five proposals will utilize either an existing or under construction facility for delivering one of two colliding beams, the other two energy-frontier proposals are green field designs. In order to deliver high performance (including luminosity, polarization and detector acceptance) to satisfy the science needs, an array of advanced accelerator concepts and technologies has been integrated into to the machine designs. In this seminar, I will present an overview of these EIC proposals. My talk will focus on concepts, features and the present status the accelerator designs as well as technical innovations and accelerator R&D challenges.
