Since its foundation in 1992, EUROPT(R)ODE has grown into one of the major optical sensor conferences worldwide. Traveling in Graz (Austria), Firenze (Italy), Zurich (Switzerland), Mόnster (Germany), Lyon (France), Manchester (UK), Madrid (Spain), Tuebingen (Germany), Dublin (Ireland), Prague (Czech Republic), Barcelona (Spain) EUROPT(R)ODE XII will be organized for the first time in Athens, Greece from April 13th to 16th, 2014 by NCSR ‘Demokritos’.

The EUROPT(R)ODE Conference series attracts more than 250 participants from over 30 countries and focuses on all aspects related to the research, development and applications of optical chem/bio sensors. This biannual Conference brings together engineers and scientists to discuss the recent progress and future trends in the design, fabrication, and application of optical sensing devices.

The EUROPT(R)ODE XII Conference invites original contributions in subjects including, but not restricted to:

  • New materials and principles in optical detection and transducing mechanisms
  • Integrated optical systems, Point-of-Need, Point-of-Care and Lab-on-a-Chip optical platforms and solutions
  • Novel optoelectronic instrumentation and components
  • Micro-and nano Optical Sensor Arrays
  • Molecular Receptors and Methods of Surface (bio)functionalization for optical sensing
  • Multiplexed Detection in Complex Matrices
  • Applications of Optical Sensors is areas such as genomics, proteomics, medical diagnostics, pharmacology, health care, intracellular sensing, food analysis, agriculture, environmental monitoring, defense, and security
  • Novel Commercial Devices

Some reasons for attending EUROPT(R)ODE XII:

  • EUROPT(R)ODE has become the world’s leading conference on optical sensors presenting a unique opportunity to get informed about the latest developments and trends of this extremely challenging field
  • The event covers all aspects of optical sensor development satisfying the needs and interests of both academia and the industry.
