We present the results of archival coincidence analyses using public neutrino data from the 40-string configuration of IceCube (IC40) and contemporaneous public gamma-ray data from Fermi LAT. Our analyses have the potential to discover statistically significant coincidences between high-energy neutrino and gamma-ray signals, and hence, possible jointly-emitting neutrino/gamma-ray transients. This work is an example of more general multimessenger studies that the Astrophysical Multimessenger Observatory Network (AMON) aims to perform. AMON is currently under development and will link multiple running and future high-energy neutrino, cosmic ray and follow-up observatories as well as gravitational wave facilities. This single network will enable near real-time coincidence searches for multimessenger astrophysical transients and their electromagnetic counterparts. We will present the component high-energy neutrino and gamma-ray datasets, the statistical approaches that we used, and the results of analyses of the IC40+LAT datasets.
