Abstract         :  In 1911 Otto Toeplitz asked whether every simple closed

curve in the plane contains the four vertices of a square. Despite

having obtained considerable attention, this problem is still open in

full generality. Nevertheless there are recent results, also for

problems with a similar flavour, each of which having their own

subtleties and difficulties. This talk will give a survey on that.
