Abstract: Interacting conformal field theories are notoriously difficult to study in dimensions greater than four. In this talk, I will discuss some recent work, in which we explicitly derive novel ways to extract interesting data of five-dimensional superconformal field theories from supersymmetric localization. I will mainly outline how some of these general results can be applied to statements in holography.
