The workshop is open to researchers working on metonymy and related
issues. We'll fix shorter slots for their talks, but we can't provide
funding for them. Perhaps you can pass on the information to colleagues
who look for an appropriate forum to discuss their research.
You could do us a favour, if you included depictional metonymies
(related to maps, pictures, models, fancy virtual reality things) in
your example sets.
