Created by Dr. Konrad Zuse in 1941, the Z3 was the world's first working programmable, fully automatic computing machine. When judged by modern standards the Z3 was the first machine that could be considered a complete computing machine. The original Z3 was destroyed during the war but a fully functioning replica was built in the 1960s by Zuse's company and will be on display the conference.
