    Summary: The word smart as used in terms such as smart cities and smartphones usually refers to the ability of a device to learn from users through algorithms and AI. In this paper, by contrast, we will examine what older people actually do with smartphones, based on evidence from nine field sites around the world, each of which was studied over a 16 month period. We will show that the creative and inventive uses of older people around the world are far more important in creating the smartphone than the conventional notion of smart. Also By teaching smartphone use to older people we could start by seeing what was not smart in the smartphone. This led to a wider examination of the field of mHealth, which is usually seen as the creation of bespoke health apps. But our research shows how and why in practice this is not the main way people employ smartphones in relation to health. Far more significant are the way older people use the ubiquitous apps of their smartphone but reconfigured to be used in relation to health. Though these can have both negative and positive consequences. Overall the paper will argue for an approach to the smartphone which we call smart-from-below.

    Summary: The TEC-MED model, a pioneering model of socio-ethical-transcultural care for dependent elderly people and/or those at risk of social exclusion, "focused on integrated care and on providing coordinated, proactive, multidisciplinary assistance to the elderly". This model is offered to public and private institutions that already want to respond to the health crisis that has so seriously affected the elderly by developing a common model supported by computer applications, the project can help to establish a reference model for social care in the Mediterranean region.

    Summary: The conference will address the impact of the introduction of technologies on the care of the ageing people. From the point of view of the social sciences, the various areas of care will be analysed, ranging from professional health care to care provided in the family environment and self-care. It will also discuss how technological advances have influenced the culture of elderly care, leading to social changes and transformations for both the elderly and those who care for them.
