In this paper we study supersymmetric field theories on an AdS(p) x S-q space-time that preserves their full supersymmetry. This is an interesting example of supersymmetry on a non-compact curved space. The supersymmetry algebra on such a space is a (p - 1)-dimensional superconformal algebra, and we classify all possible algebras that can arise for p >= 3. In some AdS(3) cases more than one superconformal algebra can arise from the same field theory. We discuss in detail the special case of four dimensional field theories with N = 1 and N = 2 supersymmetry on AdS(3) x S-1.
