Ground based and space born radio spectrometers are used to monitor the eruptive activity of the Sun, indicating the escape of electron beams during flaring events, or the propagation of shock waves in the corona and the interplanetary medium, which is of interest for the space weather community. With the current amount of observations and variety of dedicated instruments, the need for automatic methods detecting and classifying solar radio bursts becomes urgent. This splinter session is aimed at presenting and coordinating the ongoing efforts that are taking place at different research institutes.
