This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Formal Engineering Methods, ICFEM 2008, held in Kitakyushu-City, Japan, October 2008. The 20 revised full papers together with 3 invited talks presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 62 submissions. The papers address all current issues in formal methods and their applications in software engineering. They are organized in topical sections on specification and verification; testing; verification; model checking and analysis; tools; application of formal methods; semantics.
