Expected ALICE performance on open heavy flavour and quarkonia

Abstract : Heavy flavours promise to be valuable probes to elucidate the nature of the hot and dense matter formed in heavy ion collisions. Heavy quarks, produced in initial hard scattering processes, are expected to suffer in-medium energy loss. As for heavy quarkonium states, regeneration processes might counterbalance colour-screening effects. ALICE through a comprehensive heavy flavour program, will address these open questions benefiting from unique LHC conditions: unprecedented large production cross sections and initial temperatures expected to be high enough to dissolve bottomonia. In this talk, we review a selection of significative heavy flavour measurements planned to be performed by ALICE
