Abstract / Description:We review the occurrence of exceptional groups in string theory: their dual role as gauge symmetry and as a symmetry unifying space-time, superconformal ghost and internal degrees of freedom. In both cases the relation to the extended world-sheet supersymmetries is discussed in detail. This is used to construct the supermultiplet structure of the massless sectors of all supergravity theories possible in string theory, in even space-time dimensions between four and ten.
