Constrained Willmore surfaces are critical points for the Willmore energy under variations of the surface preserving its conformal structure. We will explain the (very few) known results for compact surfaces in general and then focus on the case of tori. Here theoretical results and experimental work (equivariant examples, conformal Willmore flow) come together to suggest a first picture of what a ``constrained Willmore conjecture" might look like.
