Comparative Neuromuscular Biomechanics is a Working Group of the International Society of Biomechanics. The CNB aims to increase the visibility of comparative biomechanics and neuromechanics at the ISB.  Our goal is to accelerate cross-pollination between comparative and human biomechanics fields.

The CNB will hold a biennial International Symposium in comparative neuromuscular biomechanics.  Our first Working Group Symposium was held at the International Society of Biomechanics / American Society of Biomechanics meeting in 2019 (ISB/ASB 2019).
