In the frame of the Deep Near Infrared southern sky Survey (DENIS), our program is to recover all the asteroids observed during the survey and to determine their I, J and K magnitudes. The aim of our work is to enlarge the asteroid colorimetry data base to the near-infrared in order to improve the knowledge of the compositional structure of the asteroid population.
