We are looking for a unique and creative logo, for a software tool, named "BROWNIE". This a non-profit academic research software tool, and the acronym stands for Behavioral Research of grOups using Web and NeuroIS Experiments. (Note that the I is derived from the I in NeuroIS, which stands for Neuro Information Systems, or information systems designed based on neuro-scientific theories http://neurois.org/).
The tool will support researchers in running group and individual experiments in the lab, such as group decision making, trading behavior, market competition and cooperation scenarios, and understanding human computer interaction. In addition, it will help to measure people’s physiological data using sensors (such as heart rate, skin conductance response, blood flow, brain activity, even eye movement tracking (!) ), and examine their user states, such as emotions, workload, attention, etc. The tool supports elegant UI designs for experiments. Finally, the tool allows for browser-based experiments in the lab.
Feel free to think how you would put these ideas together... Some preliminary focus points:
1. Group interaction, Group Decisions
2. Physiological Sensors
3. Measures such as heart rate, skin conductance, blood flow, brain activity.
4. Behavioral Experiments in the lab
You could also consider using the space just above or below the word "Brownie". Combining any of these points would be rated higher :)
Our primary target audiences are researchers in the domain of Information Systems, Neuro Information Systems and Behavioral Sciences.
Your creative designs are most appreciated! If you would like to, please feel free to add a short description of your design.
