Abstract: Superconformal field theories in five and six dimensions have become an integral part in the general understanding of quantum field theory, with many interesting implications in lower dimensions. They are hard to access using traditional methods but can be engineered in string theory. I will discuss recent progress in the holographic description of five-dimensional superconformal field theories and present first applications.
