Abstract:

The 8th Vienna Optrode Workshop is the continuation of a highly successful workshop series started by Prof. Robert Keilner and Prof. Otto S. Wolfbeis in 1989. The 8th Workshop, dedicated to the memory of Prof. Keilner, will be for the first time held in Prague in the Czech Republic. Similarly to the previous Workshops, it will deal with detection systems employing optical sensing principles used in modern Analytical Chemistry. Two directions can be seen in this field, namely, search for new chemical transducers with higher and higher sensitivity as well selectivity and the development of advanced optical techniques capable of fully exploiting the potential of these transducers. The general aim of the Workshop in Prague is to show the state-of-the-art of the two directions mentioned above. As at the previous Workshops, invited lectures and contributed posters will be presented. We believe that they both will contribute to the main topics of the 8th Workshop by giving both survey and showing recent results and directions. The invited lectures presented by the invited speakers have been arranged into two sections reflecting basically the main topics of the Workshop. The contributed posters then further develop the subjects of the invited lectures and provide a basis for fruitful discussions among the Workshop participants. The organizers hope that the abstracts in the Proceedings, printed from the received camera-ready texts, may contribute to this discussion. Finally, the organizers would like to thank you for participating in the Workshop, presenting the contributions and wish you to enjoy the meeting. We also thank the sponsoring organizations for supporting the 8th Vienna Workshop in Prague.
