There are a total of 21 eccumencial councils recognized by the Catholic Church (not counting the first council of Jersulem mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles in the BIble). Vatican I was 1869-1870. Vatican II was 1962-63. Generally they're named after where the council was held so the next eccumencial council could be held at the Vatican (so would be Vatican III) or it could be held elsewhere (and thus have a different name). There will probably be another eccumenical council sometime - but I don't think there will be one in the near future.
