The 46th meeting of the LCN conference — LCN 2021 — was to be held in Edmonton, Canada, and they remain our virtual host as we will not hold a physical meeting this year due to COVID-19. Edmonton will be the site of a future LCN meeting.

"Whether you know us as the River City, Capital City, The City of Champions, or Canada's Festival City, one thing's for sure — if you are looking for an unforgettable and original experience, you've come to the right place! We're a big city with small town values, a vibrant urban centre in the heart of wilderness, the largest northernmost metropolis. There's a uniqueness to how we do ordinary things. We are a city that is authentic, rugged, and original: it's an attitude that you'll only appreciate once you’ve visited Edmonton." (Edmonton Radio Advertising)

"Edmonton is a vibrant urban centre in the heart of the wilderness, the largest northernmost metropolis, and the capital of Alberta, Canada. Experience what 18 hours of sunlight a day feels like in the summer, or how the first snowfall transforms the river valley in winter. No matter the season, Edmonton is made for exploring."
