ACM multi-media acceptance rate

I was browsing the MM papers and found the following statistics very amusing. (See here for the original source.) Notice the unusually low submission (and high acceptance) rate in 2009. What is causing this? A natural explanation is that the recession prevented many people from attending (and thus submitting) to a conference held in a relative remote place like Beijing. Anyone else has better ideas?

MM: Papers Acceptance Statistics
Year Submitted Accepted Rate
2009 32 22 69%
2008 308 56 18%
2007 298 57 19%
2006 292 48 16%
2005 312 49 16%
2004 331 55 17%
2003 255 43 17%
2002 330 46 14%
2001 61 18 30%
1997 142 40 28%

  1. That should be a bug or mistake of ACM digital library.
    The 22 of 32 accepted rate is for ‘MM&Sec ’09 Proceedings of the 11th ACM workshop on Multimedia and security’
