This conference brings together academic experts and practitioners from South East Asia and beyond to share new knowledge, ideas, and experiences pertaining to Physical Education and Sport. The scientific program of this conference included many topics related to Physical Education, Sports and Public Health as well as those in related fields in order to accommodate more aspirations and expressions of sport’s and health communities. The issues being covered in this proceeding are:
1. Physical Education: Teaching, Assessment, Curriculum, Administration and Management

The ever-changing scope and rapid development of Physical Education, Sports Science and Health create new problems and questions, resulting in the real needs for sharing brilliant ideas and stimulating good awareness of this important research field. We promise to produce a bright picture and charming landscape for expert, researcher and practitioner while the support received and the enthusiasm witnessed have truly exceeded our expectations. The responses to the call-for-papers had been overwhelming – both from Indonesia, country around South East Asia and from all over the world. Unfortunately, many manuscripts from prestigious institutions could not be accepted due to the reviewing outcomes and our capacity constraints.
We would like to express our gratitude and appreciation for all the reviewers who helped us maintain the high quality of manuscripts included in the proceedings published by Atlantis Press. We are very grateful to the International/National advisory committee, Session chairs, students’ volunteers, and administrative assistants who selflessly contributed to the success of this Conference.
