We present attributed hierarchical port graphs (AHP) as an extension of port graphs that aims at facilitating the design of modular port graph models for complex systems. AHP consist of a number of interconnected layers, where each layer defines a port graph whose nodes may link to layers further down the hierarchy; attributes are used to store user-defined data as well as visualisation and run-time system parameters. We also generalise the notion of strategic port graph rewriting (a particular kind of graph transformation system, where port graph rewriting rules are controlled by user-defined strategies) to deal with AHP following the Single Push-out approach. We outline examples of application in two areas: functional programming and financial modelling.
