The trace (or zeroth Hochschild homology) of Khovanov’s Heisenberg category is identified with a quotient of the algebra $W_{1+\infty }$ . This induces an action of $W_{1+\infty }$ on the center of the categorified Fock space representation, which can be identified with the action of $W_{1+\infty }$ on symmetric functions.
