At a time of unpredictable challenges for health, whether from a changing climate, emerging infectious diseases, or the next microbe that develops drug resistance, one trend is certain: the ageing of populations is rapidly accelerating worldwide. For the first time in history, most people can expect to live into their 60s and beyond. The consequences for health, health systems, their workforce and budgets are profound, and the new technologies and the way of intervention are the solution for the challenging problems related to this phenomenon of ageing. 

 In this context the organized Round table brings scientists from different field of research that are working together current master and PhD students for today and near future solution for an aged society based on smart sensing, mobile health, smart homes, smart cities, environment medicine and so on. At the same time the solution acceptance and aspects regarding data analysis as so as security and privacy will be discussed.
