Building on published guidelines for good design practice as applied to the creation of modelling languages, we consider the creation of an appropriate notation for a domain-specific modelling language for supporting agent-oriented information systems design. We begin by analyzing extant metamodels, in particular that for FAML, in order to visualize these ontological concepts as a concrete syntax that adheres to semiotic principles and good design heuristics. We seek a notation that is easy to understand by industry users, is ontologically correct and is underpinned by some theory - expressed here as the FAML metamodel. © 2012 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
