The paper emphasizes some abilities of a representation formalism, called activity-centred graphs (ACGs), in the complex information system modelling. Activity-centred graphs, derived in our research from the classical conceptual graph formalism, offer linguistic, structured and logically consistent means for representing concepts and processes. Techniques like declarative and procedural structuring, modularity and encapsulation balance the apparently overloaded ACG representation and help for a procedural guiding and control of the process execution. ACG logical support and inferential capabilities help for proving their correctness and for complex (forward and backward) inference upon these graphs.
