We consider high energy gravitational scattering of a light particle off
a heavy one. We compute the corresponding eikonal phase to all orders in the 
impact parameter. We use the AdS/CFT correspondence to deduce a number
of consequences for strongly interacting conformal field theories of any dimensionality.
