When you submit your abstract you will be asked to indicate your preferred* presentation format (Award Oral, Mini Oral, Lightning Talk, Poster).  The Scientific Program and Awards Committee (SPAC) will use this indication as a guide when assessing your submission.  SPAC will assess all submissions based on merit and may accept your abstract in a different category to your nominated format.
