The first meeting of the International packet Network Working Group (INWG) was organized on the fly by Larry Roberts at the first International Computer Communications Conference (ICCC) in October 1972 in Washington DC. There were several more INWG meetings over the next several years. INWG developed a host-to-host protocol designed to work across a concatenated set of packet networks, each potentially based on different technologies. The first TCP paper by Cerf and Kahn was presented at an INWG meeting and credited earlier INWG work as its basis (a credit Bob Kahn now repudiates as "just boilerplate"). A detailed description of INWG can be found online at INWG and the Conception of the Internet: An Eyewitness Account
