Some 5d gauge theories have a 6d N=(1,0) SCFT as their UV completion. Given such 5d gauge theory we desire to determine its 6d UV completion. In this talk, I will present a method to do this for 5d gauge theories that can be engineered in string theory by brane webs. This can then be applied to study compactification of 6d N=(1,0) SCFT's on a torus.
