The subject of this year's special exhibition is "Computers from Germany".
The following exhibitions have been registered so far:
Norbert Opitz and Ingo Truppel
Leibniz, Zuse, Nixdorf and others – German inventors and companies have had a lasting effect in computing history. As a location for research and development, as an important market, and as a place of manufacturing, both the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic have played an important role in history. As the 50th anniversary of renowned East German manufacturer Robotron approaches, we celebrate the event with a special exhibition on computers from Germany. We thus invite exhibitors to present (working) historic computers with a relation to Germany – independently of whether they came from a German company, were designed or "Made in Germany".
If the sophisticated nerd of 1982 founds a computer company then the product of choice is of course a Motorola 68000-based modular computer that is faster and less expensive than a monolithic, non-extensible Apple Macintosh. The operating system is to be written in Modula-2 using the self-developed Modula-2 compiler (that is of course also included). The cheetah (Gepard in German) is selected as the company name. Computer of this brand will, later on, control cool things such as experimental university-developed ion drives. Fritz Hohl
