Considering it was the very first edition of the Conference, the participation was great, quality of both audience and the speakers. I have taken part in a similar conference on authentication in Paris which is organized by OECD annually, but I find The Authentication Forum to be much more relevant for the Indian context. I would recommend it and would love to be back next year.
