 1996 is the year of the first extra-solar planet discoveries.
 4 Jupiter sized planets have been discovered so far around
 main sequence stars. We believe that the VEGA phenomenon (infrared
 excess emission due to dust disks around main sequence stars) is
 related to planet formation in that the left-over planetesimals
 are the likely source of the observed dust particles.
  Of the four planetary systems, three are fortunately covered by
 ISO observations looking for VEGA like excess. We propose to use
 30 minutes of discretionary time to observe the newest example
 and, if possible, discover the disk associated with that star.
