Abstract: In 2007, a document entitled "A Roadmap for Sound and Music Computing", authored by internationally renowned experts, aimed to identify, characterize and propose strategies for tackling the key research challenges that this growing and diversified domain was expected to be facing in the next ten to fifteen years. The original idea was to establish a common agenda and ensure consolidation, integration and exploitation of research results from European initiatives and projects. Ten years later, we can reconsider those forecasts and check the achievement of the expected results. Besides, considering recent technological innovations and approaches (such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, etc.), we take a fresh look at sound and music computing education. The goal is to outline the characteristics required by academia and industries to future domain experts, who have to be multifaceted persons with interdisciplinary expertise including music, musicology, math, physics, and computer science.
