The article discusses highlights of the Europt(r)ode X Conference in Prague, the Czech Republic from March 28-31, 2010. The conference on optochemical sensing and biosensing was attended by 244 delegates from 25 countries. Presentations were made on integrated optical systems, micro, nano and multisensors, and applications of optical sensors environmental monitoring, food analysis and medical diagnosis. Otto S. Wolfbeis was honored for his outstanding research on chemical and biosensors.
