Historic Information of IEEE CS TCCC (before 2004)
The IEEE CS TCCC was founded in the mid 1970s upon the upcoming of LANs and communications between nodes. Ethernet and related approaches have seen a majority of support in terms of standards work from the TCCC. Its major flagship conference was, since the early days, the LCN (IEEE Conference on Local Area Networks), which was run in Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A. until its 22nd appearance in 1997. Afterwards, it was held in Lowell, Massachusetts, U.S.A. in 1998 and 1999, followed by Tampa, Florida, U.S.A. from 2000 to 2002, and at different locations afterwards in North America, Europe, and Australia, and sees today an alternating location between non-US and US sites. Details on some older LCN conferences can be found here
