I will give a survey of the recent construction of the analogue of Penner's coordinates on higher Teichmueller spaces, related to supergroups of low rank, namely OSp(1|2) and OSP(2|2). These spaces are of special importance in superstring theory, where they are known as N=1 and N=2 super-Teichmueller spaces. This talk is based on joint works with Ivan Ip and Robert Penner.
