Main Question or Discussion Point

Does anyone know of any robotics competition that will be taking place sometime later this year or next year?

I'm looking for a competition that involves college level students.

The US FIRST competition is held once a year. The competition is for high school students, but college students and professional engineers typically team up to mentor the high school teams.

Marinetech.org has an underwater robotics competition for college level as well as HS level students.
http://www.marinetech.org/rov_competition/
The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International also has an underwater robotics competition (http://www.auvsi.org/competitions/water.cfm [Broken])for college and HS students as well as unmanned ground vehicle(http://www.igvc.org/) and unmanned aerial vehicles (http://www.bowheadsupport.com/paxweb/seafarers/default.htm [Broken]).
I hope this helps.

That's quite a few competitions, thanks for the links guys. I was expecting more local (US) competitions though.

RoboCup US Open is probably the closest that I have seen so far, and if it is held the same time every year then it should be held next may again (which is good).
