Abstract
    We present the results of searches for point-like sources of neutrinos based on the ?rstcombined analysis of data from both the ANTARES and IceCube neutrino telescopes.The combination of both detectors which di?er in size and location forms a window inthe Southern sky where the sensitivity to point sources improves by up to a factor oftwo compared to individual analyses. Using data recorded by ANTARES from 2007 to2012, and by IceCube from 2008 to 2011, we search for sources of neutrino emission bothacross the Southern sky and from a pre-selected list of candidate objects. No signi?cantexcess over background has been found in these searches, and ux upper limits for thecandidate sources are presented for E?2:5 and E?2 power-law spectra with di?erentenergy cut-o?s.
