We are delighted and excited to welcome attendees to the fourth United Kingdom and Ireland Computing Education Research (UKICER) conference. The conference represents a number of firsts, it is the first time the conference has taken place in Ireland, it is the first time the conference has delivered a Doctoral Consortium and it is the first time the conference has taken place in-person since the inaugural gathering! The passion, resilience and commitment of computing educators in the United Kingdom, Ireland and elsewhere is evident as they have been able to contribute to the growing body of research in computing education despite the challenges of the past few years. Presenting exciting research and collaborations at a number of venues, including some presented at UKICER. UKICER is growing from strength to strength, building on the success of previous conferences. The aim of the conference is to strengthen and expand the community of researchers in the region. Consequently, just as with previous conferences, there are many sessions for attendees to engage with, including our first Doctoral Consortium, our second Research in Practice Project Activity (RIPPA) session as well as workshop, poster and research paper sessions. UKICER 2022 received 24 paper submissions, of which 10 were accepted, giving an acceptance rate of 42%. The papers cover a broad range of topics in computing education. The authors originate from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the wider world. Each paper had a minimum of 3 dual anonymous reviews. To address potential conflict of interest issues, particularly prevalent in a small community like ours, we followed ACM policy. Under this policy, reviewers indicated conflicts of interest prior to being allocated papers to review and to address conflicts with the programme chairs, an associate program chair (APC) was appointed. We are grateful to the local organisation for their efforts in delivering an experience for the community to engage and connect as well as the programme committee in reviewing papers. The conference would not be possible without the efforts of the community and their commitment to engage and expand those engaged in computing education research. To that end, we would also like to thank all those authors that submitted their work for consideration at the conference, such efforts, in such challenging times, only serve to propel us all forward.
