      • found: Wikipedia, Oct. 23, 2014:under G8, Annual summit (The annual G8 leaders summit is attended by the heads of government. The member country holding the G8 presidency is responsible for organizing and hosting the year's summit. The serial annual summits can be parsed chronologically in arguably distinct ways, including as the sequence of host countries for the summits has recurred over time, series, etc.; [article gives a complete listing of the G6/G7/G8 annual summits in chronological order, with numbering and location; the 1st Summit (1975, Rambouillet, France) was a G6 summit [no publications in LC database]; the 2nd Summit (1976, Dorado, Puerto Rico) was the first G7 summit; the designation G7 Summit continues through the 22nd Summit (1996, Lyon, France); the 23rd Summit (1997, Denver, Colo.) was the first G8 summit; the designation G8 continues until the 39th Summit (2013, Lough, Erne County, Fermanagh, Northern Ireland); the 40th Summit (2014, Brussels, Belgium) did not include Russia due to its association with the Crimea crisis, so was technically a G7 summit; the 41st Summit will be held in 2015 at Schloss Elmau, Germany)
