a German computer scientist, former chess programmer, and along with Thomas Nitsche affiliated with Proximic, a high performance contextual matching service. During the late 70s, at Technical University of Munich along with Wolfram Wolff, Elmar Henne already cooperated with Nitsche on the parallel chess program Parwell, before they started to develop their mighty Mephisto computers with the unique Briquette design in collaboration with Hegener & Glaser . Henne also focused on Modula-2 and in their post computer chess area since 1986 on CAD systems with object oriented Modula-2, which was co-developed by Elmar Henne as well.
