The 2018 WNAR/IMS meeting will be in Edmonton, Canada from 24-27 June at the University of Alberta. The campus is located on the southern bank of the North Saskatchewan River. As one of the largest cities in Canada, Edmonton is a cultural center, with many arts and culture events anchored in the downtown Arts District, accessible from campus by the city light rail system. Both the Edmonton Jazz Festival and Freewill Shakespeare Festival are scheduled to occur in the city during the WNAR conference dates. Most of the city has accessible bike and walking trail connections. In addition, Edmonton is a 4 hour drive from Banff National Park, Canada’s oldest National Park and Alberta’s most visited tourist destination. Visitors to Banff in the summer can enjoy hiking, camping, canoeing, cycling, fishing, golfing, kayaking, skateboarding, swimming, walking trails, and relaxing at the hot springs. The local organizers are Bei Jiang and Linglong Kong. Details about the meeting will be posted here as they become available.
