I will consider the 4-point function of stress tensor multiplets in the 6d (2,0) theory and describe solutions to the crossing equations whose superconformal partial wave expansions are truncated in spin. Using holographic arguments, I will show that the spin-0 solution corresponds to the leading correction to the tree-level supergravity prediction for the 4-point function in the large-N limit, and higher-spin solutions are subleading compared to the 1-loop supergravity prediction, which has yet to be calculated.
