IMO the easiest way would be using AmsTeX as package under LaTeX.
This will allow typesetting of your proceedings in a single
LaTeX run (I did several proceedings this way, combining
latex,plain and amstex contributions).

Switching from pure AmsTeX to AmsLaTeX is not hard.
Have a look at http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/amslatex-primer/
where is amshelp.tex and template.tex to start with,
in addition to http://www.ams.org/tex/amslatex.html.
