I've just come across the following paper:

Anheier, H; Gerhards, J; and Romo, F. 1995. "Forms of Capital and Social
Structure in Cultural Fields: Examining Bourdieu's Social Topography"
American Journal of Sociology 100(4):859-903.

The authors apply a blockmodelling algorithm that they developed called
ICON-H (Iterative Combinatorial Optimization on Networks with
Hierarchical extensions).  Can anyone tell me whether this algorithm has
been implemented in any of the available SNA software packages?

Thanks for your help.
