The SYZ conjecture is a conjectural geometric explanation of mirror symmetry. Based on this, Kontsevich and Soibelman proposed a non-archimedean approach, which led to the construction of non-archimedean SYZ fibrations by Nicaise-Xu-Yu. A recent result by Li relates explicitly the non-archimedean approach to the classical SYZ conjecture.

In this talk, I will give an overview of this subject and I will focus on families of Calabi-Yau hypersurfaces in P^n. For this class, in collaboration with Jakob Hultgren, Mattias Jonsson and Nick McCleerey, we solve a non-archimedean conjecture proposed by Li and deduce that classical SYZ fibrations exist on a large open region of CY hypersurfaces.
