The sheer complexity of software systems nowadays makes modeling artifacts pervasive throughout the development process, be it use requirements, analysis, design, or development. Whether models are used for communication or prescriptive purposes, their syntax and pragmatics affect usability and represent contributory factors concerning the accidental complexity. The diversity of modeling notations and approaches permits classifying them according to different taxonomies. General-purpose and domain-specific modeling languages can be created with different intended scopes, although all of them can make use of graphical, textual, maps, matrices, tables, and combinations regarding its concrete syntax. These representations have the undoubted advantage of capturing and increasing understanding of complex software systems and better grasping the rationale behind them. In essence, a visual modeling language creates a joint base for the modeler by improving their communication and lays a solid foundation for the implementation.
FPVM 2022 aims to promote and foster discussions on many aspects of visual modeling languages, including novel and visionary ideas and techniques, notations for the generations of support tools for visual languages, the usability of tools and meta-tools.
