ALICE, the dedicated heavy-ion experiment at LHC, will be presented in this paper. The physics goals of the experiment will be briefly discussed, with emphasys on those items which are new or more relevant with respect to RHIC and SPS energies. The general features and the performance of the ALICE detector will be outlined, together with the planned data taking program.
