This edition of Procedia Computer Science represents the proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Knowledge - Based and Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems (KES 2020), organised by KES International and held in virtual form on the KESonline virtual conference platform, 16-18 September 2020.    This is the first time that this conference has been held virtually, and this has been made necessary because of the Covid-19 pandemic which has swept the world.  Covid-19 has caused disruption, economic problems, and human tragedy in many countries.  We offer condolences and sympathy to those who have sadly lost loved ones or colleagues in the pandemic.    KES 2020 was the 24th event in a series of broad-spectrum intelligent systems conferences first held in Adelaide, Australia in 1997. The main aim of this KES conference series is to provide an internationally respected forum for the dissemination of research results and the discussion of issues relating to the theory, technologies and applications of intelligent engineering and information systems.     This truly international conference attracted submissions from a substantial number of researchers and pra ctitioners from all over the world, who submitted their papers to four general tracks and 40 special sessions on specific topics.  A large number of submissions was received and each paper was peer reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee.  From them, 401   high  - quality papers were accepted for oral presentation and publication in Procedia Computer Science, submitted for indexing in Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI), Scopus and INSPEC.    The conference chairs would like to express their gratitude to the Keynote Speakers: Prof Yukio Ohsawa, University of Tokyo, Japan, title of talk: Beyond Explainable Learning to Explanatory Intelligence- A Systems Innovation Approach on Data Jackets -'; Dr Urszula Stańczyk, Silesian University of Technology, Poland, title of talk: On the uniqueness of writing styles- Problems and tasks of stylometry'; Dr. Ralf Christian Haerting, University of Aalen, Germany, ‘title of talk to follow.'; and Dr Guido Governatori, Data 61, Dutton Park, Australia, title of talk: ‘title of talk to follow'.    We would like to acknowledge also the Programme Co-Chairs, the General Track Chairs, the International Programme Committee members and reviewers for their valuable efforts in the review process, helping us to guarantee the highest quality possible for the conference. We would also like to thank the organisers and chairs of the special sessions which make an essential contribution to the success of the conference.  Lastly, we would like to thank all the authors, presenters and delegates for their valuable contribution in making this an extraordinary event.     KES International hopes and intends that KES2020 will make a significant contribution to international research collaboration and understanding, an essential task for the promotion of scientific joint work and excellence.
