Abstract: In this talk, I will report a new progress on understanding of 6d superconformal theories (SCFTs) via a new 5d web diagram. This web diagram is an extension of type IIB (p,q) 5-brane web diagrams, with an infinitely rotating shape of a constant period. We call it "Tao"diagram. This Tao web diagrams naturally appear when a 6d theory compactified on a circle. We discuss various 5d theories which have same UV completion, leading to UV dualities in five dimensions.
