This volume contains the proceedings of the 29th annual conference on Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems (ADASS XXIX). ADASS is the premier conference for the exchange of information about astronomical software, and it is organized each year by a different hosting astronomical institution at a different location. The conference provides a forum for astronomers, software engineers, and data specialists from around the world to discuss software and algorithms as used in all aspects of astronomy, from telescope operations, to data reduction, to outreach and education. In addition to presenting their work, delegates engaged in discussions on emerging technologies and debated future directions in areas such as common data formats, software reuse, and data dissemination. As such, ADASS is a vital mechanism to foster discussion for the advancement of the field.

This was the first time that ADASS was organised in the Netherlands and it was a very timely and important meeting. The conference programme was shaped to present and discuss technical developments that are being pioneered in the Netherlands and prepare the community for the next generation astronomical observations with the Square Kilometre Array, ESO telescopes (including the Extremely Large Telescope) and ESA space missions (e.g., Gaia and Euclid).

These proceedings contain 182 papers representing the invited, contributed, and poster papers as well as the “Birds of a Feather” sessions and demonstrations.

The ADASS XXIX conference was hosted by ASTRON (Netherlands Institute for Radioastronomy) in collaboration with seven more Dutch institutes: JIVE (Joint Institute for VLBI ERIC), ALMA ARC Leiden, RuG (University of Groningen), Leiden University, SRON (Netherlands Institute for Space Research), RU (University of Nijmegen), and UvA (University of Amsterdam).
