We show how superconformal gaugings in three dimensions can be systematically constructed using the embedding tensor technique. These gaugings have been argued to describe the worldvolume theory of multiple M2-branes. Applying our technique we construct the most general superconformal gaugings with N = 5, 6 and 8 supersymmetry. In the case of N = 5 supersymmetry we find three exceptional gaugings. We briefly discuss new developments concerning the massive deformations of the superconformal gauge theories. (C) 2009 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim
