We are the International S.T.E.P.S. Foundation, an educational scientific non profit oragnization established in the state of New York in 1970. For almost 50 years, our conferences ''the Olympiads of the Mind'' have resulted in the publication of 23 volumes of proceedings disseminated around the world and have hosted influential participants from 50 nations. The mission of the Olympiads of the Mind is to convene people from the fields of Science, Technology, Economics, Politics and Society (S.T.E.P.S.),
to address major issues of regional and global urgency.
By jointly applying the concept of S.T.E.P.S., participants aim to promote world communication and
understanding, and to improve conditions of life on Earth.
Please join us to support and help organize the Tenth Olympiad of the Mind ("Diversity, the Rich get Richer and the Poor get Poorer") in Chania this year.
