My paper is accepted for poster presentation for a conference. Is it allowed sent it again to other conferences without withdrawing it from first conference? I am looking for oral presentation.

Most conferences do not allow this, look for the conferences' dual submission policy. – Marc Claesen Jul 27 '14 at 7:57
@MarcClaesen Short as it is, this is basically the answer to this question. You should make it an actual, acceptable answer. – xLeitix Jul 27 '14 at 8:06
@xLeitix: This is only true for CS. – aeismail Jul 27 '14 at 11:59

Most computer science conferences do not allow this, look for the conferences' dual submission policy.

Marc Claesen's answer is correct for computer science.

In most non-CS fields, there is much greater tolerance for "cross-listing" of talks, because the conferences are not the primary "publication venue" for papers. Therefore it is considered entirely appropriate to give a poster presentation at one conference, and an oral talk at another venue, particularly if the audiences are "non-overlapping." It would be expected, though, that unless the conferences are very close to one another in time, that you would update the presentation somewhat between conferences.

What's actually forbidden is publishing the same paper more than once. Even in computer science, it is perfectly acceptable to talk about the same paper at more than one conference/workshops, as long as at most one of those events publishes proceedings. – JeffE Jul 27 '14 at 12:21
