Abstract: We evaluate the large 't Hooft coupling behavior of Wilson loops in N=2 superconformal gauge theories in the planar limit.
The functional form of the Wilson loop in the limit is obtained by extending Pestun's localization procedure for N=4 super Yang-Mills theory to N=2 theories.
Implications to AdS/CFT correspondence are discussed.
