The City of Edmonton is the capital of the province of Alberta, with a population of approximately 1.3 million in its metropolitan area. The scenic North Saskatchewan River, with its source in the glaciers of the Canadian Rockies, runs through the city. Edmonton is a unique urban environment, with over 160 km of maintained pathways and 20 parks in its river valley, one of the longest stretches of connected urban parkland in North America. The downtown area has many of Edmonton’s oldest heritage buildings and its tallest office towers. The University of Alberta’s main campus, the main conference venue for ISB 12, is located on the south side of the North Saskatchewan River within walking distance of many hotels, restaurants, shopping areas, and cultural activities.
