Name that Software!

While we are excited about the new functionality of the ARTstor Offline Image Viewer (OIV), we aren’t sure OIV is the best name.

We are interested in your point of view. Does OIV need a name? Do you have an idea for a name?

We are reserving a stack of chocolate bars and an ARTstor t-shirt for anyone who solves our naming dilemma.

Email your ideas, along with your name, institutional affiliation and role, to namingcontest@artstor.org.

We are accepting suggestions for names until Friday, December 9th, 2005.
