Paper Abstract

Numerous planetary candidates have been detected on nearby G and K dwarfs by high precision radial velocity measurements. The sensitivity to the planet detection by astrometric surveys is very different from the radial velocity searches. Discussions about current results on the detection of extra- solar planets and the impacts of these detections on futur astrometric surveys with the VLTI is presented. The main assets of astrometrical surveys compared to radial velocity surveys is discussed as well.
