I don't have that information. if you remember in the previous years some of 
us were asked to help choose the talks. In the last few years we are no longer 
asked to do so.

As I'm not involved with the committee that makes the decisions I can't tell. 
But I do know a few folks that have submitted talks and they weren't accepted. 
I know last year I submitted a tutorial and a talk, and only the tutorial was 
accepted. This year I didn't even bother to submit a talk proposal. I suppose 
other people get discouraged too and submit less. I could be wrong, as this is 
all handwaving.
