Abstract: 
The celebrated boson-fermion correspondence is an isomorphism between the bosonic Fock space and the fermionic Fock space. We present  categorification of the bosonic Fock space and the Heisenberg algebra which is a modification of Khovanov's Heisenberg category. The categorifcation of the fermionic Fock space is based on Honda's category studying contact topology in dimension three. This is a joint work with Mikhail Khovanov.
