ABZ 2010 was held in the beautiful natural setting of Orford in the Eastern Townships of Qu ebec,during February22 25,2010,midwaythroughthe Ca- dian winter and the 21st Winter Olympics, bringing participants from all over the world to brave this rigorous climate. ABZcoversrecentadvancesinfourequallyrigorousmethodsforsoftwareand hardware development: Abstract State Machines (ASM), Alloy, B and Z. They shareacommonconceptualframework,centeredaroundthe notionsofstateand operation,andpromotemathematicalprecisioninthemodeling,veri?cation,and construction of highly dependable systems. These methods have continuously matured over the past decade, reaching a stage where they have been successfully integrated into industrial practice in various areas like trains, automobiles, aerospace, smart cards, virtual machines, and business processes. Their development is in?uenced by both research and practice, which mutually nurture each other. ABZ has both a long and a short history. With the aim of stimulating cro- fertilization between these four methods, it has merged their individual conf- ence and workshopseries which started in 1986 for Z, 1994 for ASM, 1996 for B, and 2006 for Alloy. The ?rst ABZ conference was held in London in 2008; ABZ 2010 is the second edition. The conference remains organized as four separate Program Committees.

This book constitutes the proceedings of the Second International Conference on Abstract State Machines, B and Z, which took place in Orford, QC, Canada, in February 2010. The 26 full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 60 submissions. The book also contains two invited talks and abstracts of 18 short papers which address work in progress, industrial experience reports and tool descriptions. The papers cover recent advances in four equally rigorous methods for software and hardware development: abstract state machines (ASM), Alloy, B and Z. They share a common conceptual framework, centered around the notions of state and operation, and promote mathematical precision in the modeling, verification and construction of highly dependable systems.
