I will discuss a class of CFTs obtained by Higgsing the (2,0) ADE theory by a pair of nilpotent elements in the ADE group. In the A_k and D_k case, the
nilpotent elements are labeled by Young diagrams, and the holographic dual is known explicitly in IIA. T-dualizing to F-theory is necessary to understand the D_k case. In the E_k case, only the F-theory description is available, via the theory of so-called Bala-Carter labels.
