This volume of the ASP Conference Series contains papers that were presented at the 20th annual conference on Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems (ADASS XX).The ADASS Conference provides a forum for scientists and scientific software developers to present and discuss the latest innovations in algorithms, software, software systems, and technologies for astronomical data analysis and data management. This year, the conference key topics included Education and Public Outreach, Scientific Computing, Large Observatory Challenges, Cross Catalog Matching, Solar Astronomy, and Grid and Grid Virtualization. These and a wide range of additional topics were addressed in a program that included 14 invited speakers, 32 contributed oral presentations, and 126 poster presentations. Two well attended tutorial sessions, five floor demonstrations, five focus demonstrations, and five "Birds of a Feather" discussion sessions completed the conference program. The topics and techniques discussed in this volume will be of interest to a wide audience of scientists and scientific programmers who either work with or are responsible for developing and managing complex software systems and large data volumes.
