We briefly outline the plans for scientific activities with the International Robotic Antarctic Infrared Telescope (IRAIT), recently mounted at Dome C. We summarize a few fields where infrared observations with the IRAIT telescope can be effective and we focus on a key project for the Commissioning Phase, namely the determination of the luminosity and of evolutionary parameters for evolved Long-Period Variables (LPVs).
