Abstract: First results of the observational campaign Dwarf aimed at detection of circumbinary extrasolar planets using the timing of the minima are presented. The campaign is focused on low-mass eclipsing binaries with M and K components, short-period binaries with an sdB or sdO component, and post-common-envelope systems, which enable us to determine minima with high precision. Because the light-time effect (LITE) amplitude caused by an additional component to an eclipsing binary increases with its the orbital period, the timescale of the project is at least 5-10 years.
