We report on a classification of supersymmetric solutions to 11D supergravity with SO(2, 2) x SO(3) isometry, which are AdS/CFT dual to 2D CFTs with N = (0, 4) supersymmetry. We recover the Maldacena, Strominger, Witten near-horizon with small superconformal symmetry and identify a class of AdS(3) x S-2 x S-2 x CY2 geometries with emergent large superconformal symmetry. This exhausts known compact geometries. Compactification of M-theory on CY2 results in a vacuum of 7D supergravity with large superconformal symmetry, providing a candidate near-horizon for an extremal black hole and a potential new setting to address microstates.
