ABSTRACT OF TALK
Konrad Zuse is largely unknown in North America but is a celebrated computer pioneer in his native Germany. Zuse developed functioning program-controlled computing machinery as early as 1936 and went on to form a successful European computer business in the 1950s. This colloquium brings together three distinguished Zuse scholars in an informal gathering designed to bring Zuse's remarkable accomplishments to a wider audience. The colloquium takes place on October 1, 1999 at the NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California--in the heart of Silicon Valley. There is no fee for the event however, in order to be admitted onto the NASA facility, an RSVP is mandatory.


The colloquium is followed by a reception at Computer History Museum's visible storage exhibit area, located one block from the Conference Center, at which the recent donation of one of Zuse's mainframe computers, the Z23, will be formally recognized. This reception is hosted by the German Consulate-General of San Francisco.
