Exploring the Nexus of Mobility and Communications on an Ocean Crossing: The Chan Wui & Yunyin Rising Star Workshop

In July 2016, the Transportation Research Board (TRB) piloted a workshop in an unusual location—a transatlantic cruise on the Queen Mary 2. The Chan Wui & Yunyin Rising Star Workshop convened an accomplished group of academics to explore research questions stemming from changes in transportation and telecommunications and to discuss career development. This article discusses workshop planning, participant selection, the setting, workshop goals, and workshop results. As a follow-up to the workshop, each of the seven participants authored a paper describing his or her own research; the papers underwent rigorous peer review and will be published in the 2017 series of the Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board.
