## Abstract

We describe the general BPS system that governs the gravity duals of \( \mathcal{N}=\left(0,\ 2\right) \) two-dimensional superconformal field theories in the low-energy limit of M5-branes on a four-manifold, *M*_{4}. In order to preserve supersymmetry, we restrict to cases where the four-manifold is embedded in a Calabi-Yau fourfold that is a sum of two line bundles over *M*_{4}. We further reduce the \( \mathcal{N}=\left(0,\ 2\right) \) system to describe the gravity duals of SCFTs with \( \mathcal{N}=\left(0,4\right) \) and \( \mathcal{N}=\left(2,2\right) \) supersymmetry. In the first case, the solutions fit in the larger class of *AdS*_{3} ×*S*^{2} × *CY*_{3} solutions of M-theory dual to \( \mathcal{N}=\left(0,4\right) \) SCFTs. In the case of the \( \mathcal{N}=\left(2,2\right) \) theories, the near-horizon limit of *M*_{4} is necessarily a product of two constant curvature Riemann surfaces whose metrics are governed by a pair of Liouville equations.
