This volume of the ASP Conference Series contains papers that were presented at the 21st annual conference on Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems (ADASS XXI). 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 GPUs in Astronomy and Beyond, Cloud Computing and Virtualization, Statistical Data Analysis and Knowledge Discovery, Planning, Scheduling and Operating Observatories, Solar Astronomy, Virtual Observatory, and Long Term Preservation of Analysis Capabilities in Astronomy Software. This and a wide range of additional topics were addressed in a program that included 15 invited speakers, 29 contributed oral presentations, and 156 poster presentations. Two well-attended tutorial sessions, five floor demonstrations, six focus demonstrations, and four "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.
